Strawberry, Tart Cherry & Grape

Raspberry, Elderberry & Acai

Banana, Blueberry & Pomegranate

  

Dice two cups of fruit into small pieces. In a small pot, bring fruit concentrates/juices, water and agar to a boil. Let the mixture simmer on medium until agar is almost dissolved (about 25 minutes). Add in the fresh fruit to the kettle and bring to a boil. Simmer until fruit is extra soft (about 5 minutes).

Remove from stove and let cool for 10 minutes. Transfer mixture to a blender or food processor. Add honey. Mixture will be warm.  Blend until smooth.

Pour mixture onto flat non-stick or sprayed baking sheet or tin. The size of your sheet will determine how thick your gummy snacks will be.

Refrigerate for at least one hour until firm. Refrigerating overnight allows for the best flavor. After the gummy mixture has firmed and cooled, cut out snacks using shape cutters. For best results, keep fruit snacks refrigerated.

Each flavor mixture makes 12 servings.
