These soft, plush homemade Raspberry Sherbet Marshmallows
have a deep raspberry flavor and a wonderful sweet-tart berry taste that characterizes raspberry sherbet. The lip-puckering 'zing' comes from citric acid, which is a candy-making staple and one of my favorite kitchen secrets. Just a small amount of this powder can make ordinary candies more interesting and flavorful. (Check out this link
to learn more about what citric acid is and where you can find it.)
In the case of these marshmallows, a pinch of citric acid transforms a mild-mannered fruity marshmallow into an addicting snack. If you can't find any, you can try adding a little lemon zest to punch up the tart flavor of the marshmallows. You can enjoy these on their own, or pair them with chocolate, like in hot cocoa, brownies, or s'mores.
