Homemade Fruit Gummies

(May 05, 2015)

Here are a couple of easy recipes to do with the kids and can be stored in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

Fruit Juice Gummies

2 cups fruit juice 
4 packets Knox gelatin
Honey to taste

  1. Pour 1 1/2C fruit juice into small sauce pan and heat over medium heat until it reaches a gentle boil.
  2. While juice in saucepan is heating, pour remaining 1/2 C juice into bowl.  Add gelatin and let bloom for 5 mins.
  3. Add gelatin to heated juice and stir until fully dissolved.
  4. Taste juice mixture and add honey for desired sweetness.
  5. Pour mixture into silicone candy/ice molds or 9x9 metal baking pan.  If using silicone molds, rounded shapes such as flowers, etc. work better than pointed shapes, like stars.
  6. Chill for 1 1/2-2 hours and remove from mold/pan.  If the gummies don't come out easily, chill for another 1/2 hour.  If you used a 9x9 pan, run a knife along the edges and gummy should come out in square shape, which you can then cut into shapes as desired.

Fresh Fruit Gummies

4 cups fresh fruit such as strawberries, blueberries, peaches, etc or mixed fruits
1/2 c fruit juice
3 packets Knox gelatin
Honey to taste

  1. Place fruit in a blender/food processor and blend until smooth.  If you want, you can strain through a sieve to remove seeds.
  2. Pour puree into small sauce pan and heat on medium until it reaches a gentle boil.
  3. Add gelatin to heated juice and stir until fully dissolved.
  4. Taste juice mixture and add honey for desired sweetness.
  5. Pour mixture into silicone candy/ice molds or 9x9 metal baking pan.  If using silicone molds, rounded shapes such as flowers, etc. work better than pointed shapes, like stars.
  6. Chill for 1 1/2-2 hours and remove from mold/pan.  If the gummies don't come out easily, chill for another 1/2 hour.  If you used a 9x9 pan, run a knife along the edges and gummy should come out in square shape, which you can then cut into shapes as desired.
