Ingredients

Scale

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup 100% fruit juice, OR
    cup fruit puree and cup 100% fruit juice
  • 8 tsp grass-fed gelatin
  • 2 Tbsp honey (optional)

SUPPLIES

Instructions

  1. If you’re starting with whole fruit, make fruit puree by blending fruit in a blender. Then measure fruit puree into the larger measure cup/bowl first. Add honey if using.
  2. Measure juice into a small saucepan and turn the heat on medium-low. Add the gelatin and whisk constantly. Bring the mixture to an almost simmer – you want it to be definitely warm, but not hot, to the touch – about 3 minutes. The liquid should be opaque or clear and the gelatin should be completely dissolved before proceeding.
  3. Add the juice/gelatin mixture to the puree (if using) in the bowl/cup with the spout. Whisk to combine juice/gelatin with puree and/or honey, if using.
  4. Place the mold on the baking sheet. Pour the mixture into the molds, but do not overfill them. Alternatively, pour the mixture into the 8×8 glass pan.
  5. Place the entire baking sheet with the mold on top, or the 8×8 glass pan, in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  6. Pull the gummies out from the freezer and pop them out of the molds. Store in a container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Notes

  • Have all of your supplies and ingredients ready to go before you begin. The recipe moves fast!
  • Taste the liquid before freezing. If it doesn’t taste good, the gummies won’t either when they’re done. Err on the side of too sweet rather than not sweet enough!
