When I was a child, we used to go to the Nut Tree located in Vacaville. After ordering your food, they delivered to your table sliced pineapple with marshmallow sauce. Looking for a sweet treat for after dinner with friends the other night, I tried my hand at marshmallow sauce. There are recipes out on the internet for this sauce and most use corn syrup. I do not use corn syrup, so I made my own sweet mix that is a substitution that is better for you. So, let’s head off into the kitchen to make some of this tasty treat that goes well with pineapple! This recipe makes 2 1/2 cups of sauce.n Here is a preview…
Ingredients for the corn syrup substitute
1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup of boiling water
Ingredients for the sauce
1 large egg white
2 TBS cold water
sugar syrup from above
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
1 tsp of pure vanilla extract
Place the egg white in a mixing bowl and using your hand beater or stand mixer, beat the egg white on high speed. To check if the egg white is ready for the next step, lift the beater out of the egg white and you should have soft peaks form. Here are three photos showing the progress.

When this is ready, the next step is to add the water. On low speed incorporate the water and then add in the sugar syrup.

Increase your speed to medium high.
Just about ready for the powdered sugar
The mixture will become creamy, white in color, and should be almost double in size. This process should take about 8 minutes. Here it is when it is done.
Ready for powdered sugar
Turning the mixture back to low, gradually add in the powdered sugar.
Powdered sugar added
When this has incorporated into the mix, add in the vanilla.
Once this is done, refrigerate the sauce for about 4 hours. You will need to stir it before using. Here is what this sauce looks like over a couple of slices of pineapple.
