Get the health benefits of fruit and gelatin Gummy snacks are a great way to medicate quickly accurately and discretely. This recipe makes about 150 average sized gummies
What you will need:
- Cooking spray
- Cup with pour spout
- Silicone Molds
- ¾ - 1 cup tincture
- 2 ½ ounces unflavored gelatin
- 12 ounces Jello
- 1 Tablespoon Tart & Sour or Citric Acid Powder
- 1 cup Chilled Fruit juice (not citrus or pineapple juice)
- ½ cup Honey or Agave
- ½ Tablespoon Flavor Extract
- Lightly spray your gummy mold with cooking spray. (Keep it light, no one wants oily gummies)
- Stir the gelatins and citric acid together in a large bowl.
- In a separate bowl, stir the honey and fruit juice together.
- Whisk the gelatin and honey mixture together until it’s completely blended.
- In a large, non-stick saute pan, reduce your tincture on low heat. The alcohol will evaporate leaving a concentrated thick syrup, similar to molasses. Each cup of tincture will result in 1-2 teaspoons of concentrate.
- Add the flavor extract and gelatin/juice mixture into the pan.
- Simmer over medium-low heat while whisking the gummy mixture constantly.
- Stir until the gelatin completely dissolves, approx. 7-10 minutes.
- Pour into gummy trays using a cup with a pour spout.
- Refrigerate approximately an hour.
- Remove from trays.
YMMV regarding the stickiness of your gummies. If needed, to help prevent them from sticking together, refrigerate laid out gummies for 24 hours. Flip halfway through.
Store in refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to 2 months or in the freezer for up to 1 year.
