1cup freshly squeezed orange juice (freshly squeezed over store bought is recommended for ultimate sweetness)
4 tablespoons grass-fed gelatin
1 tbsp. honey or maple syrup (optional – especially if oranges aren’t in season, not recommended for my patients)
Combine gelatin and juice in a small bowl; stir slowly to combine. Once combined set aside for 5 minutes to allow gelatin to ‘set’ AKA become ‘gel like’.
Once the consistency has changed to resemble a thick paste, scrape mixture into a saucepan over low heat for approximately 1-2 minutes in order to liquefy. This will ensure the gelatin has dissolved and the gummies will set evenly.
As soon as the gel has liquefied, poor gelatin juice mixture into baking moulds or a flat ceramic baking dish before popping it in the fridge to set. This should take approximately 1hour.
Once gelatin has set, remove gummies from moulds OR if you have used a baking dish, cut gummies into small bite sized pieces before serving.
As these gummies have a very similar consistency to “jelly” without the additives, preservatives and what not, warm temperatures will cause them to melt. Keep refrigerated for best consistency.
