As a kid, gummies rated high on the list of candy and are a common product for infusing when thinking of gummies. There are many recipes and techniques for making gummies. I like to create gummies with as little as possible using jello. Using fresh fruit juice, fruit purees, soda, coconut water, and bar mixes are possible substitutions for water used in most recipes. In this recipe, I used my “Skittle Dust”.
- Silicone Molds
- ¼ cup canna coconut oil
- ¼ cup apple juice
- ¼ blue curacao
- ½ tsp potassium sorbate
- 1/2 tsp lecithin
- 1 0z Skittle Dust (blue and green)
- 1 oz plain gelatin
- 1 oz of Blue Sonic Jello (I only use a ⅓ of the box of jello)
- 1 cup tincture reduced
- Reduce tincture (do not use a gas stove, the tincture is highly flammable).
- Whisk in canna coconut oil, apple juice, blue curacao, and lecithin in a medium pan on
medium heat until combined with the pan of the reduced tincture.
- Sprinkle plain gelatin and lecithin and whisk till combined.
- Sprinkle 1 oz of blue jello and potassium sorbate whisk until combined.
- Continue whisking on medium heat for five minutes.
- The mixture will start to form.
- Pour into molds and place in the freezer for 20 minutes or till firm.
- Remove from freezer, pop gummies out of molds.
- Place gummies on a parchment-lined drying rack. Air dry for 24-48 hrs. If you are going
to roll in sugar or citric acid do so at the 12 hr mark.
- Store in an airtight container.
ProTip: Potassium sorbate prevents gummies from molding especially when using fresh fruit juice.
