« on: August 26, 2009 09:29:07 PM »

So I tried to make the homemade gummy bear recipes that I have found online and they turned out yucky. So I came up with my own recipe. They are yummy and healthy too.

10 packets of Knox Gelatine

2 cups juice (avoid Pineapple, Kiwi, Papaya, Guava, Fig, and also Ginger Root)

1 cup Organic Sugar

1 tsp of Flavor Extract * Optional (Whole Foods has a lot of great ones)

In a medium sauce pan combine the first 3 ingredients, stir slowly over medium heat. You dont want to wisk it up because youll get froth at the top.

Take a candy mold and spray lightly with non-stick spray. If you dont have a candy mold use a 99 baking dish and cut them into squares, kinda like turkish delights.

Once your mixture in the pan becomes clearish and not cloudy and more its ready to add your flavor extracts if you want and then to go in the molds. Its easier to pour this into a glass measuring cup with a pour spout to pour into the molds at this point. Pour liquid into your molds up to the edge. Allow to cool on the counter top for about 30 minutes and then turn out on to a cookie sheet. Store in a plastic bag in the fridge. Of course they probably wont last that long!

Variations are on my blog.

they look yummy! i've wanted to make my own gummies for a while but never got around doing it.

and you are right, it's hard to find good gummy bear recipes
what amount/kind of gelatine is "10 packets of knox gelatine"? is it granulated or in sheet-form?
i live in europe and sometimes it's hard to translate (especally american) ingredient lists.

Thanks to who ever fixed my post!Yeay! The packets are the granulated form, each one is 7.2 grams so you would need 72 grams for each batch. Hope that helps> ;0)

Mmmmmm gummy bears!  Just curious, why do you need to avoid Pineapple, Kiwi, Papaya, Guava, Fig, and also Ginger Root?  I only really care about the pineapple because it's one of my fav flavors.

These are great, thank you for sharing.

Those will keep the gummys from setting. If you love pineapple you'll have to use a flavor extract or on the bottom of my blog page about this there is a recipe for using jello and you could use pineapple flavored jello. ;0)

do you haft to keep them in the fridge.  My sister is getting married in Las Vegas on Halloween, and I wanted to make some gummy skulls and eyes for goodie bags.  Would they last if I didnt keep them in the fridge.

No, I'm Phoenix and I want to keep them cool just in case because I was worried about the juice spoiling. I think they would be ok out. ;0)
