These vegan blackcurrant gummies, made without the artificial colours and flavourings, are quick & easy to make. All you need is 100% juice and Agar powder to make these healthy treats at home.
1 cup of juice*
1 tsp Agar powder
1 tbsp maple syrup or 1 tsp honey – or to taste (optional)
* here I have used 1 tbsp of Viberi blackcurrant powder in one cup of water
** Jellies may ‘sweat’ when weather is humid. To prevent this, you may dissolve 1 tsp of corn starch (corn flour) with the agar into the liquid that you are cooking
Pour the liquids into a cooking pot and sprinkle with Agar Powder and sweetener of your choice (if using). Use a whisk, mix to combine and let stand for 10 minutes for the Agar to swell.
Place the pot on medium heat. Warm to dissolve the Agar and sweetener, while stirring. When the mixture reaches a boil, simmer for 2 minutes while stirring to make sure all is dissolved. Remove from heat and ladle immediately into a flat dish. The mixture will set at room temperature. Refrigerate for a faster and stronger set. Before serving, cut the gummies into bite-size shapes.
