Gummy Bears

First, make a mixture by combining the juice, water, and lemon juice together and pour it into a medium-sized pot.

Pour a packet of unsweetened gelatin into the liquid mixture and let it sit for about 2 minutes.

Place the saucepan over the heat and stir the mixture until the gelatin is completely dissolved. (Low heat is sufficient, as gelatin has a low melting point)

Remove the saucepan from the heat and add your sweetener. Continue stirring until the sweetener is dissolved.

Pour the mixture into the gummy bear molds and place them in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or until they have set.

Once the gummy bears have solidified, gently pop them out of the molds and enjoy.

3. Tips and Tricks

- To add flavor, you can use different types of juice such as orange juice, grape juice, or cranberry juice.

- If you have trouble removing the gummy bears from the molds, try rinsing the molds in warm water for a few seconds.

- To keep your gummy bears fresh, keep them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

- If you want to make your gummy bears more colorful, you can use food coloring

- If you want to keep the gummy bears for a long time, you can add a small amount of food preservative (but we don't recommend it)
