Combine gelatin and 1/2 cup of water in a mixer bowl and let bloom while cooking sugar syrup.
Combine sugar, Sugar in the Raw syrup, 1/4 cup water, and salt in medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil and allow to remain and a rolling boil for 3 minutes.
Turn mixer onto low with just the gelatin in the bowl. Pour boiling syrup over gelatin** and slowly raise the speed to high over about 4 minutes to avoid splatter.
Add vanilla at this point and continue to beat until it is the consistency of marshmallow cream. This usually takes about 5 -10 minutes depending on the temperature of your kitchen and speed of your machine.
Pour mix into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Allow to cool.
After about 4 hours, use a greased pizza cutter to slice into individual marshmallows.
