I've been trying a simple recipe I found on the internet, which is a simple recipe consisting mostly of gelatin.
The problem is that the end result is basically just a fruit-flavoured jelly (Jell-O?), rather than the more chewy gummy-bears (Haribo) style of jelly confectionery.
Can anyone suggest what I need to do to make them less springy and more chewy. It's all difficult to articulate!
Here's what I used for the first test-batch:
- 12 tbsp sugar
- 12/3 cup fruit juice
- 8 tbsp Golden Syrup
8 tbsp gelatin
- soften the gelatin in 1/2 cup of cold water.
- place sugar, syrup and the juice in a pan and gently heat until sugar dissolves.
- Stir in the gelatin and stir until dissolved.
- Pour into moulds and wait until set.
