Red and green:

  • The procedure is the same for both, except for the liquid. The varieties have to be made one after the other because each one has to harden first. The rest and preparation time, among other things, therefore only ever relates to one variety. (For me, each flavor was enough for 2 mats with a total of 100 gummy bears). A long time ago I bought the mats including pipettes for little money on the Internet, and the purchase has so far been worth it. (see also Cola gummy bears)
  • Soak gelatine in cold water and allow to swell. Bring the syrup (see link or ready-made, but the slightly more expensive one for cocktails) and water with the citric acid to a boil in a saucepan. For the green bears, add the apple juice with the citric acid later (see above). Take the pot off the stove, turn off the heat, squeeze out the gelatine a little, stir in portions into the hot liquid and let it dissolve completely. Then put the pot back on the switched off but still warm stove and stir in the jelly powder until it has completely dissolved. Then try the liquid once. Since syrup was used for the red ones, it is already slightly sweet. But if you like it sweeter, or have to sweeten the greens in the first place, you can now make it with a sweetener (e.g. erythritol or similar) of your choice or with sugar. However, both must also be stirred in the liquid on the still warm stove until it has completely dissolved. In the end, it should be clear and without bubbles. If a light, whitish foam has formed in places on the surface as a result of stirring, simply remove this thinly with a teaspoon.
  • Place the silicone mats on a firm surface. Then always suck up the clear liquid with the pipette, squirt it full to the brim into the bears, in such a way that the surface becomes very slightly curved. Then later put the mat with the mats in the refrigerator to harden. This can take 2 hours. Longer is cheaper. Then just push the bears out, place them on a plate or other smooth surface and - if you can wait - let them dry a little over night.
  • The ones from their own "gummy bear tree" are a bit different than those from Ha .... o, but they come very close ........ but everyone can buy ......... .. ;-))) and if you made it yourself, you know for sure what's inside.
