Fruit juice or fruit concentrate (use concentrate for a more intense flavor)
Corn starch/powdered sugar (optional)
You will need 1/4 oz. gelatine (a Knox packet) per 1/2 cup juice.
I find that small batches are much easier to use.
- At room temperature, put juice in a pot. Add gelatine. Add sugar, if desired.
- Let sit for 1 minute. This lets the gelatine soften.
- Bring mixture to a boil.
- Boil 10 or more minutes, until it looks like the bubbles are having real difficulty exiting the mixture.
- Spoon mixture into lightly oiled molds (or a baking pan will do).
- Allow to set in the refrigerator- 1 hour for very small gummies; overnight for very large gummies. They're done when they feel solid.
- Remove from molds.
- Optional: lightly coat with powdered sugar/corn starch/a mix thereof (depending on desired sweetness). This keeps the gummies from sticking together.
You can leave them as a treat in their own right, or if you'd like to follow my journey, I made them into chocolate-covered Powerberries!
