The last time I made my FSG I boiled for almost 30 minutes to see how gelatinous it would get. Got to say it still strained quite easily. I think it might be the slip from the marshmallow root making it runnier. Then I added some AVG and agave syrup to thicken it up and that worked. Because I boiled it for so long, however, and so much steam evaporated, I had less FSG than usual. So maybe I'll go back to boiling for ten minutes and get a hold of arrow root or something else to thicken it up. I've heard castor oil is good and I love castor for deep treats, but I'm hesitant to put it in my styling products because I'm unsure of what it'll look like. . . Seems a little too thick.
