Do You Need A Special Mold?

Gummy bear Molds are easy to buy online. You can buy them through amazon. You could also improvise and use a baking tray or ice-cube tray and settle for block shapes. It’s not as easy without the stick-free gelatin mold.

How Do You Get Gummy Bears Out Of The Mold?

This was a trick I learnt the hard way. I lost plenty of gummies before I realized how to stop them from sticking to the mold. If you lightly grease the mold with coconut oil first, the gummies will slip right out when fully set. 

Can These Homemade Gummies Mold?

Yes, these gummies will grow mold or go moldy in about three days if not refrigerated immediately. It’s actually a good thing, as it’s a sign that your gummies are made with fresh, natural ingredients, and no preservatives are present.

Do homemade gummies need to be refrigerated?

If you store the gummies in the fridge, they should stay edible for up to two weeks.

Can You Make Homemade Gummies Vegan?

luckily you can. There’s a gelatin substitute called agar agar. It comes from an algae source, making it a suitable plant-based alternative to regular gelatin. You should be able to find it in Asian grocery outlets.

Equipment

  • Blender
  • juicer
  • Gelatin Mold

Ingredients

  • 3 10g Packet gelatin or 30g loose gelatin powder
  • 2 Whole Peaches
  • 2 Whole Naartjies
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 Squeeze lemon juice

Instructions

  • Open three sachets of gelatin and place it in a bowl and cover with enough water to dissolve. Let this sit for a few minutes to ‘bloom.’
  • Remove all pips from the fruit used. Blend using a blender, smoothie maker, or masticater. The juice should be as smooth as possible when done. Sieve the liquid to remove skins and pulp.
  • Place the fruit juice in a pot and heat over the stove on low or heat in the microwave until warm. Break up the pieces of solidified gelatin and stir into the heated juice mixture and stir continuously until all the gelatin has melted into the juice. Add in extra flavors at this point, if desired (a squirt of lemon or vanilla essence).
  • Lightly grease the silicone mold with coconut oil to ensure gummies don’t get stuck or break up when removing from the mold, then fill the silicone mold with the fruit juice blend using the dropper provided. Suppose you don’t have this mold; try using an ice tray.
    Work quickly before the mixture solidifies and then refrigerate for at least 3 hours. If you don’t let it set long enough, the mold won’t release the gummies properly.
  • Pop the gummies out of the mold and into a container where they can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 week.
