Homemade Chamomile Vanilla Marshmallows are the perfect way to step into an old-fashioned sense of nostalgia.

• 3/4 cup water
• 1/4 cup chamomile flowers
• 1 tablespoon gelatin
• 1 cup sugar
• 2 tablespoons honey
• Pinch cream of tartar
• 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
• 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
• 2 tablespoons cornstarch

1. To brew chamomile tea, bring water to a boil in a small pot. Remove from heat and add chamomile flowers. Cover and let sit for 10 minutes. Strain flowers from the tea and chill in the refrigerator until liquid is cool.

2. Pour 1/4 cup of chilled chamomile tea into the bowl of a stand mixer. Sprinkle gelatin over the tea and let sit for 10 minutes.

3. Combine sugar, 3 tablespoons chamomile tea, honey and cream of tartar in a pot. Over medium heat, gently stir the mixture until sugar dissolves. Continue cooking sugar mixture, without stirring, until it reaches 234 degrees on a candy thermometer.

4. Immediately turn on the stand mixer to its lowest setting while pouring a thin stream of hot sugar mixture into the center of the bowl. When all the sugar is poured, turn the mixer on high and let run for 10 minutes. It should double in volume.
