Lemon Lime Gummies

citrus gummies

Treats. Sweets. Good to eats.
Looking for something new for the palate and have been seeing alot of paleo folks playing with gelatin, which on it’s own is very good for you, your gut, your joints, etc. Seeing as I really cannot get into the bone broth thing (although I have really enjoyed the process of making it!) I look to grassfed organic gelatin to add to foods to help me with the things my body really needs.

I read through alot of recipes and tried quite a few. This is my best stab at “gummies” so far! These are very tart/sour/tangy…but kind of addicting!
This weekend we are going to give some other flavors a try….but this is what I have so far:

In a saucepan over a medium to low flame, combine 1/4 c. water with 5 Tbsps of gelatin powder.
Quickly add:
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup raw honey (or other like Agave or maple syrup)
Mix it thoroughly with a whisk or spoon and poor into a shallow pyrex dish…I used a 9×9…you can also use candy molds for shapes!
Place in the refrigerator to cool completely and slice or cut out shapes!
They keep in the fridge for weeks, and are so refreshing!

We also did a few batches with Kombucha in the liquids…in place of the water….with other fruit juices, and this was very nice too!
