I am getting started early for our Pirate themed Halloween Birthday Party for our littlest of littles next weekend. Boy, his Halloween birthday sure does make things fun.
For this bright orange gummy, I used the following:
1/2 cup Organic Carrot Juice (I used this one.)
1/2 cup Organic Pear Juice (I used R.W. Knudsen brand)
1 teaspoon Organic Lemon Juice
3 Tablespoons Grass-Fed Gelatin ( purchase here – you definitely want to buy this much, these are too fun not to make again and again! If you want, you can even stock up with a 3-pack! See. I usually buy the 3 pack and it lasts me for quite a long time.)
In a sauce pan, measure out your juices, then sprinkle the 3 tablespoons of gelatin into the liquid until the lumps are dissolved. Turn on the heat until just starting to bubble, then remove from heat. Let sit for about 3-5 minutes.
Place mold on a flat baking sheet. Pour your liquid into the molds. Chill in the refrigerator until set. (About 20-30 minutes is usually all it takes).
Store in an airtight container in your fridge.
I have posted several recipes for gummies. I love this bright orange color from the carrot juice. Once you have the hang of it, experiment with adding in powdered vitamins (very good quality) or even probiotics to make your own healthful gummy treats, perfect to pop into a school lunch box!
Happy eating ~ and HEALTHY Halloween.
