Homemade Sour Watermelon Gummies

5 from 1 reviews

These sour watermelon gummies are positively good for you, made with grass fed gelatin and fresh watermelon. The sour kick comes from fresh lemon juice.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 cups fresh watermelon, cut into chunks (or 2 cups juice)
  • 5 tbl grass fed gelatin
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Optional, depending on the sweetness / ripeness of your watermelon: 1/4 cup raw honey

Instructions

  1. Add the fresh watermelon to a blender and liquefy.
  2. Strain the blended watermelon through a fine mesh strainer, discarding the pulp – you should have about 2 cups of juice.
  3. Skim the small amount of white foam from the top of the watermelon juice and discard.
  4. Divide the juice: add half to a small saucepan and the other half to a bowl.
  5. Add the grass fed gelatin to the juice in the bowl by sprinkling it over the surface. Let it sit for a few minutes so that it dissolves into the juice. It will solidify.
  6. Gently heat the watermelon juice in the saucepan just to warm it – do not bring it to a boil or simmer.
  7. Add the gelatin & juice mixture to the rest of the juice in the saucepan. Whisk or stir to combine until the liquid is smooth.
  8. Add the raw honey and lemon juice; whisk until dissolved and combined.
  9. Pour the gelatin mixture into molds or a refrigerator safe pan.
  10. Chill until set, about 30 minutes and then either remove the gelatin from the mold or slice it into pieces.
  11. Can be stored at room temperature, although they are great cold.
