These are tasty & packed with anti-inflammatory goodness! My thanks to those who shared their “paleo gummy” recipes, who gave inspiration for my versions. This one in particular, my kiddo with IBD who is on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet for medical reasons, enjoys everyday, knowing that not only are they delicious, everything from the pomegranate juice, to the gelatin, to the honey, may be helpful for their insides. Good for anyone that wants to eat healthily & still enjoy their treats!

How To Make pomegranate-orange gelatin “gummies”, scd friendly

    Slowly whisk in the gelatin, making sure it has all dissolved before adding the next spoonful. If it has trouble fully dissolving, you may add low heat, but be careful not to get too hot or it will foam up & boil over very quickly. Mainly you just need patience & to keep whisking until it has all dissolved.

    Once all the gelatin has dissolved, you can pipe into gummy molds in various cute shapes. Small mold shapes will set within minutes in the fridge or freezer. Bigger shapes may take about 15 minutes. Alternatively, you can pour into a wide shallow container, and then cut into bite sized pieces after it has cooled. These keep best stored in the fridge, but most people like the texture best if allowed to warm up to room temperature before eating. These also freeze & then defrost pretty well, but that’s not usually needed as they keep well and get eaten up.

    Note: to make regular gelatin with the jiggly consistency (that’s kept & eaten cold), the ratio is 1 cup juice to only 1 Tbsp. gelatin powder.
