Be it marshmallows, weenies on a stick, or hamburgers, I couldn’t resist sharing these memories for the one word prompt: Scorched from the Daily Post. Hopefully these will “spark” a few memories of your own.
Toasting marshmallows to get them to an all over golden brown on the outside takes a lot of practice. After coaching the grandkids on technique, I show them how to carefully lift the outer toasty shell off the gooey center, eat the shell and put the center back over the coals for center-toasting. Yum! They finally figured out that the quick and easy char-flamed, scorched marshmallow was inferior to the time-taking golden method Grandma recommended.
