Homemade Grape Gummies
Homemade Gummies are yummy and nostalgic. Make them more nutritious using all-natural ingredients that YOU get to control. You get the great grape flavor (AND the pretty purple color) with need for artificial colors or flavors.
Silicone Mold (optional, or any pan with sides, like a cake pan)
2+ Quart Pot
Stick Blender (optional, but guarantees a non-clumpy gummie)
- 12 oz Frozen Grape Juice 100% pure juice
- 1/2 cup Water
- 4 Tbsp Gelatin, Unflavored Grass-fed is most nutritious, otherwise use whatever you can find
Pour 12-oz grape juice concentrate and 1/2-cup water into your pot. Heat until steam starts to rise, but don't let it boil.
Sprinkle 4 Tbsp of gelatin powder over the top of the juice, and wait a moment to let it "bloom" (it will gradually absorb some of the liquid without being mixed).
Turn off the stove. Carefully use the stick blender* (or whisk) to thoroughly mix the gelatin into the juice.
Pour the juice/gelatin mixture into a cute silicone mold or cake pan. Wait until the gummies have solidified (you can speed up the process by placing the molds in the refrigerator or freezer until gelled).
Once gummies are firm, remove them from molds (if using a cake pan, cut into desired shape before removing).
Eat and enjoy! Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
*A Stick Blender (like this one) is the best, fastest way to get a smooth gummy mixture. A whisk can work, but sometimes the gelatin will form small clumps with itself before you can get it completely incorporated into the liquid. If that happens, you can still eat it! You'll just find a few gelatin lumps when you eat your gummies.
