Gelatin Gummy Bears in 30 Minutes
70 gram NesProteins grass fed gelatin
140 gram water
225 gram sugar
22.5 gram sorbitol powder
245 gram glucose syrup
15g tartaric acid
2 gram essential oil any flavour strawberry, lemon, orange, grapefruit etc
Step 1. Bloom Gelatin
Combine gelatin and water in a ziplock-style or vacuum bag, and seal. Place bag in a hot water bath set to 65 °C. Keep it there about 30 minutes, plus or minus about 10. You can tell the gelatin has fully bloomed when the bag contents form a thick syrup that is lump- and streak-free.
Step 2 Melt Sugar Base
225 gram sugar, 22.5 gram sorbitol, 245 gram glucose syrup, combine ingredients in a pot and heat to 65 °C, stirring gently. Once heated, slowly add gelatin mix from Step 1. Incorporate by stirring slowly to avoid introducing a lot of air. Remove from heat and let mixture cool to 50 °C.
Step 3 Add Acid and Flavour Colour
Add 15g tartaric acid, 2 gram essential oil to mixture, and stir. If you want to color your candy, now’s the time to do it. Start with a few drops of liquid colouring. (Either water- or oil-based coloring should work.) Keep mixing in colouring, a few drops at a time, until you reach your desired hue. Transfer mixture to a sauce gun or whatever you’re using to cast candy into molds.
