Equipment

  • Blender
  • juicer

Ingredients

  • 3 10g Packets gelatin or 30g loose gelatin powder
  • 2 Peaches
  • 2 Naartjies
  • 250 ml Water
  • 1 Squeeze of lemon juice

Instructions

  • Step 1
    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’.
  • Step 2
    Remove all pips from the fruit used. Blend together 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.
  • Step 3
    Place the fruit juice in a pot and heat over the stove on low or simply 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 flavours at this point, if desired (squirt of lemon or vanilla essence).
  • Step 4
    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 but If 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.
  • Step 5
    Pop the gummies out of the mold and into a container where it can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 week.
