    If you really want to stretch your imagination; google "cooking with tea" and you will be surprised at some of its uses. :D
    MM is one of those concentrates I find pretty interchangeable. I use it more for a textural contribution vs. an identifiable flavor addition. I have interchanged both FA and TFA without any noticeable difference. Either will add a thicker mouthfeel as well as some sweetness. I have gone more to using Meringue instead/in place of MM. It tends to be a touch lighter in mouthfeel, and does not add as much sweetness.

    Disclaimer: I have never tried to get an actual "marshmallow" flavor from either of these two concentrates. If you are looking for flavor; please disregard my opinion. ;):D

    I subbed meringue for marshmallow in a recipe today! I do like it. TY, I’ll use it in place going forward. Less sweet is always good, especially with fruits. It can get sickly sweet quick to my taste buds.

    Do they not? I’ve got a stack of stickers where I keep getting them thrown in with my orders. Nothing too neat though. I can’t even say how many blue & green NR leafs I have. Some of them came from premixed orders before I started DIY though.

    I want to do a candy cane recipe. I read somewhere that marshmallow and peppermint ia the way to go.
    I have the peppermint, just need a good marshmallow.
    Don't worry I won't do 5% peppermint.

    Might try FA sicilian mix, I think it is also labeled as citrus mix.

    @Letitia - I am glad you mentioned on another thread that Purilam Golden Pineapple needs a steep. I made a batch of Pineapple Basil Rum Fizz subbing the Pur GP for my usual INW and was disappointed. I made it June 15, so it has been sitting for over 2 weeks now and is delicious. I mixed up a new batch on Saturday with INW. I will keep enough of the one with the PUR GP around so I can compare them.

    If I can't get a pop in a recipe a drop or two FA Berryl raspberry usually fixes it. For the lime mix i would probably add FA florida key lime and cactus or INW cactus lime.

    Honestly, I am not sure that the recipes need anything. They are bright and refreshing which is what they are supposed to be. Cuke might not end up being a favorite for me, but these are nice for summer. I did put a little INW Raspberry into the Benedict Cumbermint and we will see how that tastes. It was probably fine before I did anything. :)

    Every Purilum fruit I've tried needs an unusually long steep and the longer you leave them the better they get. I came across my Pur raspberry + berryl + cream tester that I had mixed in February, it is perfect. Bright and tart and holding its own with the cream.

    Any thoughts on a white chocolate/strawberry recipe?

    I've never got one from liquids or DIY, only hardware stores and manufacturers.
    I don't get around much for flavors.


    I like cucumber as a scent. I vape it. Put it in soap (soap scent, not flavoring) along with dehydrated pieces. Anything but eat them fresh (*burp*).
    It's also a good melon note.

    I think I've given up on chocolate strawberry because chocolate raspberry happened a lot easier.

    My goal for today is using the following flavors in at least one recipe
    Smoked Plum
    Fresh Fig
    Forest Fruit
    INW DNB

    I have all but the Forest Fruit worked out but a fruit should be easy enough to use. Maybe just a simple mix with Green Tea so I can get the taste of the fruit.

    I haven't yet mixed with all my new flavors but the ones I'm most curious about have been mixed. Next up is a cucumber mix or two.

    @IDJoel. I want to do a simple mix. Just Green Tea and Forest Fruit. What % would you use?
