Ingredients
  • 1cup fruitfresh or frozen, any variety is fine
  • 1tbsp lemon juiceif you don’t have lemon use lime
  • 1/3cup water
  • 2tbsp honeycan substitute other sweetening agents
  • 4tsp unflavored gelatincan substitute other setting agents may need to play with the measurements to get the correct consistency.
Instructions
  1. Combine 1 cup fruit, 1/3 cup water, and 1 tbs lemon juice in a blender. Puree.
  2. Pour pureed fruit into a sauce pan. Add 2 tbs honey.
  3. Simmer on medium low heat.
  4. Spoon some of the fruit puree into a measuring cup. Mix in gelatin 1 tsp at a time. Make sure to stir well in the cup. If the mixture is getting to thick and you are worried the gelatin will clump, add a little more fruit in the cup. After you have mixed in all 4 tsp of gelatin, pour back into pan. This will prevent the gelatin from clumping.
  5. Continuously stir until the gelatin mix has combined with the rest of the fruit and has completely dissolved. You will know the gelatin has dissolved because the mixture will not be as cloudy. There will be bubbles on top, but under the bubble the mix will be shiny. This can take 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat.
  6. Time to prep your molds if you are using a mold. I suggest very lightly spraying them with cooking spray. This will help them slip from the mold better (A trick I learned making Popsicle). If you are not using a mold, line a small pan with plastic wrap.
  7. Gently spoon the fruit mix into the molds, or pour into the pan. Refrigerate for 6 hours, maybe longer depending on how cold your refrigerator is. The longer it sit the firmer it gets. I leave them over night (mainly because I make them at night).
  8. Remove from fridge, and slid them from the mold. If they are stuck, dip the bottom in a tray of warm water for a few seconds and try again. If you make them in a pan use a pizza cutter to cut them into squares, or use cookie cutters to cut them into shapes.
  9. Store in an air tight container in the fridge. They should keep for at least a week in the fridge. Mine have never lasted longer than a week so I can’t tell you if they will last longer than that. ENJOY!
  10. ENJOY!
Recipe Notes
  • Exact amounts of liquid measurements is VERY important. Too much water, honey, or lemon juice will prevent your gummies from setting properly.
  • These will melt if left in heat. But they keep pretty well at room temperature.
  • I would recommend┬áserving them in a container, but by the handful. If they take too long eating them there will be a gooey mess in their hand.
