How To Make Fruit-flavored Gummies
Fruit-flavored gummies are a simple and fun way to enjoy fresh fruit that can be made in just a few minutes. This post aims to share some of my favorite recipes for homemade fruit-flavored gummies.
We will start with the simplest recipe, peach flavoring for gummy bears. This quick and easy recipe doesn’t require any cooking but requires you to strain your jelly into another container before pouring it into the plastic bag to freeze them. This recipe is also flexible enough to add fruit flavoring to the gummy mixture and then stir in the individual colored fruit pieces before adding them to the plastic bag.
There are three steps involved in making these gummies, first, let’s make the flavoring:
- 1/2 cup of jelly or jam. (We use raspberry jam)
- 1/2 cup of water or juice from your favorite fresh fruit. (We used peach juice)
- 1 tsp of your favorite fruit oil or flavoring. (We used peach oil flavoring)
- Mix the ingredients in a bowl and heat them until the jelly is completely melted. Pour the jelly into a separate bowl and pour it through a strainer to remove any fruit chunks or seeds. Let it cool before pouring it into plastic bags for freezing.
- To fill your gummies, you'll need two empty plastic trays and two huge zip lock bags. This will allow you to create multiple flavors simultaneously, cutting down on the time it takes to make each batch.
- To prepare your mold, take a small handful of the gummy mixture and press it into the mold. Make sure your mold is filled and that there are no air bubbles. The air bubbles will expand while freezing, forcing the gummy mixture out of the mold.
- Place a square of parchment paper over the gummy mixture and then add another layer of plastic wrap on top to hold it in place. This will prevent the mixture from sticking to the top of your mold.
- Now we move to our zip lock bags that are going to be used for freezing your gummies. Plastic bags can be used instead of zip lock bags, but they tend to stick together around the edges when they freeze, resulting in a few ripped bags.
- Cut a piece of parchment paper to the same size as your bags and place it over the top of both sides of the bag. Fold the bag in half, then carefully fold down one side so that it meets in the middle, creating a crease on each side.
- Repeat this process for the other half of your bags. Make sure you don't leave any gaps inside or outside of your plastic bag, as these gaps will allow air to escape during freezing and cause your gummies to shrink.
- Pour your gummy mixture into one bag. Fill it about 3/4 of the way full, but don't overfill it.
- Fold down the top of your bag to seal in your gummy mixture. Make sure you do this on both sides to create a tight seal that will prevent air loss while freezing. Label your bags if you have multiple flavors, and then put them into the freezer for at least 4 hours before using them.
Once your gummy mixture has frozen, you can use a fork to break it up into smaller pieces. If you'd like to eat your gummies now, take a piece and place it in your hand's palm. Press the gummy with your finger to form an individual gummy bear.
You can also fill small candy molds instead of using plastic bags for freezing. Fill each mold with the mixture and allow it to freeze before using it in your homemade fruit-flavored gummies.
