  • 60 ml (2 fl oz/14 cup) apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons powdered gelatine


  • In a small saucepan, warm the apple juice and vinegar over medium heat.
  • When it starts to bubble, remove from the heat.
  • Sprinkle the gelatine on top and whisk briskly until dissolved. Strain.
  • Pour into teddy bear moulds, or other moulds of your choice, or into a small lined baking tin.
  • Refrigerate for 1–2 hours, or until set.
  • Turn out of the moulds, or cut into small squares to serve. The gummies will keep in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer for 1–2 weeks.

Supercharged tip##

To make Aloe Vera Gummies, replace the vinegar with aloe vera juice.
For Vegetarian Gummies, simply heat up 350 ml (12 fl oz) aloe vera juice in a saucepan, add 12 teaspoon agar-agar flakes or powder and stir to dissolve. Continue stirring for a couple of minutes. When the mixture starts to boil, remove from the heat, add some liquid stevia, vanilla extract, chopped mint or whatever spice you like — even berries would be nice! Pour into an ice-cube tray. Top with shredded coconut if you like, then refrigerate for about 1 hour, or until set.
