Paleo Orange Gummies
3.5 c Water
3 tbsp Gelatin powder
1/4 tsp Lemon extract (or 12 drops food grade lemon essential oil)
3 tbsp Honey (or your preferred sweetener - stevia agave, maple syrup, etc.)
3 tbsp 100% orange juice (the real stuff not the sugary kind)
2 drops Yellow food coloring (may or may not be paleo depending on the kind you choose), optional
Add orange juice and 3 c water to a small saucepan on low. Warm the water but do not let it boil.
Once water is warm, add in sweetener and stir to dissolve. If desired, add 2 drops yellow food coloring. Add the lemon extract.
While water is warming, add gelatin to remaining 1/2 c warm water in a separate dish and stir to make gelatin paste.
Remove pot from heat and stir gelatin paste into the rest of the liquid.
Once fully combined, pour liquid into a silicone mold or an 8x8 glass baking dish. Refrigerate overnight or until set.
Once the gummies are set, remove from mold and use a knife to cut into squares or get little fingers involved and use shaped cookie cutters!
Store in fridge.
