Homemade Gummy Candy - Unhealthy Version!

Ingredients:
-  jelly crystals (jello powder) 85 grams/1 box
-  four tablespoons unflavoured gelatin (about four envelopes Knox)



Hardware:
-  candy moulds (the blue one is terrible as an ice cube tray, but makes a great little candy tray!)
-  1/2 cup measure
-  1 tablespoon measure
-  metal bowl
-  measuring cup (actually, you could just use the measuring cup!)





1)  Measure out four tablespoons of unflavoured gelatin, and mix with the flavoured stuff in a big metal bowl.



2)  Dump in a half cup of cold water and mix to combine.





3)  Leave for ten minutes at room temperature to bloom or rehydrate the gelatin!  (It will turn into a gross, solid mess.)



4)  Set up a double boiler - heat water in a saucepan, and toss your bowl of gummy batter onto the top!



5)  Melt your gummy batter into a liquid form with no lumps or remaining bumps in it.

From this:


To this:


6)  Pour it into your measuring cup or anything with a spout!  And carefully fill your molds with this stuff!



7)  Put the filled tray into the freezer - they are set when the feel firm to the touch.

Cool  Peel them out of the tray by wiggling them in their moulds!

9)  Dust 'em with cornstarch - and present them on a tray!

Homemade Gummy Candy - Cleaner Eating Version

Ingredients:
-  1 cup of juice of your choice  (Here I used a blend of guava, mango and passionfruit.)
-  4 tablespoons unflavoured gelatin (I found the cheaper stuff in Chinatown - $9.99 for 500 grams of the stuff)

Hardware:
-  candy moulds
-  big metal bowl
-  1 tablespoon measure
-  1 cup measure

1)  Boil down your 1 cup of juice into a half cup of juice. It's ready when the damn thing spits at you on high.



2)  Let cool, and chuck in four tablespoons of gelatin.  In your metal bowl.



3)  Leave it alone for ten minutes!  (Mine solidified into a giant lump on the bottom of the bowl...)

4)  Chuck it on a boiling saucepan of water.

5)  Let the mixture melt...Smiley  Until it's liquid...



6)  Pour into the measuring cup or anything with a spout.

7)  Carefully pour into the candy moulds.



Cool  Set in the freezer for about five minutes.

9)  Peel 'em out of the moulds, and eat!





The clear one is made with coconut water.  The light yellow one is made with mango juice.  Make sure that you reduce your liquid by half or make a syrup with it - the coconut water ones are kind of repulsive - not enough sugar in there to balance the grossness of it.

How interesting!  Do you think powdered sugar would work in place of the cornstarch?

Yup, powdered sugar will work - but I had cornstarch on hand, so yeah!

I like the fruit juice version.

I am a bit of a gummy addict if I do say so myself, and now I have the means to make gummies at home. I love the mature gummies!
