Come on Moms! Make your own Gummies!
If you have any kind of antique jello molds you can use them or use small tartlet molds.
Here's the recipe.
- 1 cup fruit juice (pure juice-not a fruit-flavored drink) or nectar, such as Goya, Mott's, or Kern's, chilled or at room temperature
- 1 1/4-ounce package gelatin (vegetarians can use agar agar)
1. Lightly coat 16 tartlet molds, jello molds or mini-muffin tins with oil.
2. Place 1/4 cup of the juice in a medium bowl and sprinkle in the gelatin. Let sit for 1 minute. (food coloring can be added for fun colors)
3. Meanwhile, in a small pan, bring the remaining juice to a boil. Add it to the gelatin mixture, stirring until the gelatin is dissolved.
4. Spoon the mixture into the molds. Chill in the refrigerator until set, 2 hours.
5. Pop the tartlets out. Serve them cold or at room temperature within 2 hours, or store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Tip You can buy plastic or metal tartlet molds ($1.50 and up each, surlatable.com). An 8-by-8-inch baking dish also works-once the whole thing is set, just cut it into squares with a knife, or into shapes with a cookie cutter.
I'm also obsessed with making these...
I wonder if they would work as gummies....hmmm
now my gears ARE turning!
