Step 1: Make sure the fire is perfect for roasting Check the fire and make sure it has areas that have burned down to embers. They should be orange, but not bursting with flame. Tip Sit upwind of the fire. You don't want smoke and flames in your face. Step 2: Prepare a fork or stick Choose a marshmallow and place it at the end of a roasting fork or a long wooden stick. Step 3: Position the marshmallow over the coals Place your marshmallow approximately 3 to 5 inches above the hot coals. Now slowly turn the stick so that the marshmallow browns evenly on all sides and gets warm and gooey inside. This should take about 15 to 30 seconds. Tip If you burn a few marshmallows, don't be discouraged. Remember the Buddhist saying: "Fall down seven times, get up eight." Step 4: Learn advance techniques Now that you've perfected the marshmallow basics you can move on to more advanced techniques. These include: roasting multiple marshmallows on a stick, making a classic s'more, and the controversial Joan of Arc marshmallow. Experiment. Soon you will become a marshmallow master. Did You Know? The original marshmallow contained extracts from the root of the marshmallow plant, which gave it its spongy quality. Now most marshmallows use gelatin.
