One of my biggest weaknesses is sweets….wine gums, jelly babies, sour worms – anything chewy. I have given them up mostly except as an exception once in a while. I do miss them though.
I saw these in one of my recipe books. Even though they arent as chewy as wine gums they are still really tasty and satisfy a craving when in need. You can go crazy with flavours and colours just keep it as natural as possible.
I made two types:
For either of them, you need:
1/2 cup freshly squeezed juice (strained)
1 tbsp sweetener of choice (i used xylitol but you could use honey)
1 tbsp gelatine (grass fed)
Fresh fruit if you want to add it to the jellies
In a pan, pour in your juice and sweetener. Stir and then add your gelatine. Let it stand for 5 minutes.
Now put on medium heat and stir constantly for 5 minutes. Pour them into moulds straight away – either an ice tray or shaped moulds like I had. I added a strawberry slice to my strawberry flavoured ones, before putting them in freezer. They will set within 20 minutes. Take them out and put in a container and store in fridge!
