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.

Step 4 Cast Gummies in Molds

Lightly dust silicone molds with cornstarch, then tap to shake off excess.

Place molds on a flat baking tray and fill each mold with the sauce gun.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until very firm.

The gummies will gel in as little as four hours under the right conditions,

but they can take a lot longer. We suggest allowing them to set overnight.
