FRUIT PUNCH GUMMY BEAR RECIPE PERFECTED
How to create, quite possibly the best edible ever created, @ 35mg THC a pop.
"I'm going to have to try this for sure definitely looks easy to follow with your guide. Been wanting to make some form of edibles that are small and last long. Cheers."
This recipe uses organic coconut oil infused with fine weed trim extract. The gummies contain 35 milligram THC each.
6 oz (170 g.) of flavored jello
1/2 cup granulated sugar
5 tablespoons of high quality grass fed gelatin (Zint brand)
1 cup COLD fruit juice
1 teaspoon Soy Lecithin
5 tablespoons infused coconut oil
1 tablespoon Vegetable glycerin
2 drops of Loranns Preserve-it antioxidants
2 drops of Loranns Mold Inhibitor
10-20 drops of Loranns Flavoring (depending on strength)
Supplies: Mold of silicone, a Cookie sheet, a small to medium sized pot, gallon zip lock bag, whisk Thermometer, measuring cup.
Directions: Lay your molds onto a cookie sheet so they are easier to move into the freezer later.
Set up your gallon zip lock now because that's what you'll be using to pour your gummy mixture into your molds. I usually just put the zip lock in a large cup and flap the edges over the sides so I can pour the mixture directly from the pot to the ziplock without the help of another person.
In a liquid measuring cup, add 1 cup of cold fruit juice. Add 1 teaspoon of Soy Lecithin and mix well with a fork. Let sit in fridge for 5 minutes, then mix well again, until the soy is mostly dissolved.
In your pot, mix together JUST your dry ingredients. jello, sugar, and gelatin.
Pour your fruit juice into your dry ingredients and mix with a whisk (this is off the stove, no heat yet)
Cover the pot and let sit at room temperature for 20 minutes, so your mixture can bloom. This is a very important step so don't skip it!
After 20 minutes, move your pot to the stove and start to raise the temperature using a low-medium heat. Don't stir.
At 140 degrees Fahrenheit, give it a stir with your whisk, and pay more attention now to the temp because we are getting close.
At 160 degrees Fahrenheit is when the rest of your ingredients get mixed in, so make sure you already have them measured out so you can easily just pour them in. Add the infused coconut oil, vegetable glycerin, flavoring, and drops. Mix well.
160 degrees is the goal temperature, but it's okay if it gets a little higher in the time it takes to add and mix your ingredients. Just don't let it exceed 180!
Pour your hot mixture into your ziplock bag and zip shut. Cut a SMALL piece from the corner of the bag so it doesn't come pouring out too fast.
Fill your molds and then place your molds in the freezer for 1 hour.
Notes: They stay good at room temperature for months and months since you used the preserve-it and mold inhibitor drops. The consistency is as close as I've ever had to a real store bought gummy since using the higher quality gelatin. And no melting at room temperature or oil separation since using the soy lecithin and vegetable glycerin.
DISCUSSION ABOUT THE GUMMY RECIPE AND EDIBLES
I'm going to have to try this for sure definitely looks easy to follow with your guide. Been wanting to make some form of edibles that are small and last long. Cheers.
Wow, this is almost exactly what I do, but I omit the fat and use decarbed BHO, which goes in last. I got the best taste results using thawed, very unnatural, undiluted juice drink concentrate. My attempts to go more natural end up with gummies that just don't mesh well with the taste of BHO.
I have to try that idea of the juice concentrates. I've been looking for ways to make it a little sweeter and that sounds like just what I need. Thank you!
I just busted my hump making gummies using an Alton Brown method (or at least from his book) that involved putting your liquids (in my case lime + lemon juice), gelatin, etc in one pan to bloom. In pan #2 you heat sugar water to the Hard Crack Stage. Yep, you heard that right. 300F degrees! You then pour that into pan 1 with the gelatin, but the instructions don't have you heating that up at all. So the sugar candy just GLUMPED up right away. D'oh - if the gelatin had been heated (ALTON I am looking at YOU) that would not have happened. Anyhow, lots of low heat and stirring combined everything - then you add your BHO plus a ton of lime and lemon zest. All natural - sounds good on paper, right? Omilligram I dread choking this bitch down. I love lime like crazy, but its got a slight bitterness to it that just gets worse when combined with BHO. Its like the bitter from the two things is greater than the sum of its part. Nope, never gonna try all natural again. You just have to have that strong, very sweet flavor that only corn sugar seems to have plus lots of concentrated, artificial flavor. I got my best results using a mango-papaya drink, thawed, do not dilute - add more flavoring as well. Your fruit punch sounds yummy - I may have to try that flavor next.
My only suggestion is to use straight distillate instead of all that coconut oil. Or concentrates. It really improved my recipe. Otherwise those look bomb! I will have to try the better gelatin, I just use the random shit on the shelf at the store.
In what ways did switching to distillate improve your edibles? I'm deciding which to use for my first attempt at gummies and I can get shatter for less cost than distillate. Is the potency different after normalizing for the differing strength of distillate and BHO? How about the time required to feel the onset of effects?
I’m the wrong person to ask about potency because I eat 100+ milligram at a time. No gummy recipe I use calls for oil, and when I started adding straight decarbed shatter/lecithin, the consistency got a ton better. Everybody liked them more that way. Not that the other way is bad, I just think this way is better. I’ve made a dozen batches at least and I’m still tweaking things here and there
That's my ultimate goal. I really want to see how good the color and taste would come out using distillate. The hardest part for me has been keeping them from getting too dark with the coconut oil.
Just a couple of drops of food coloring, my human! I made some red ones the other day that were opaque bright red, and some peach/pear ones that were a bright translucent gold.
Like how can I make distillate? I can’t find anything simple on it
These are gorgeous. I'll have to try your recipe.
How many gummies did this make? Great write-up btw.
It makes 72 gummies with the size molds I'm using. I put them in packages of 3 so I get 24 servings.
Hey mate, I'm frickin thrilled about this post! I've tried making gummies with vg and pretty much all of my results were sub-par. My best batch was mediocre. Overall I felt like I wasted a lot of time and glycerin. I'm definitely gonna try your recipe and I truly appreciate you posting it. One of my favorite Cali treats were gummies and yours look pretty legit.. How is the flavor with the coconut oil? Is there a particular flavor that you recommend that you think would taste best?
Hey man, like don't use molds for your candies that make it look like kids candies...Use shapes.
I think kids would go after gummies regardless of their shape. Same with all edibles that just look like normal desserts. It's more about keeping your medication out of kid's sight and reach.
Oh, good thing kids stay in their own lane then. I like that you argue against keeping kids safe.
You could argue that you shouldn't keep marijuana, pills, or alcohol in the house too. But many people do because they know how to keep it away from their curious kids.
It's bullshit to make drugs look attractive to kids, when there's a choice not to. That was the point. I was just trying to keep kids safer.
Namaste, my friend. Some people just aren't around kids.. And silicone molds can be pretty hard to find, so you're usually just lucky to be able to find them at all and are at the mercy of what they have in stock. I know op's gummies look legit but idk if he's making them for commercial use. One time I made chocolates shaped like dog bones b.c that was all I could find. Should I not have done that b.c it was attractive to dogs?.. I don't have any pets so it kinda seems moot. I'm sure OP isn't walking around with handfuls of them in his pockets at a daycare... I think you should redirect your anger at tobacco companies that actually spend money on marketing to children. Otherwise this argument is like saying 16 yr old girls shouldn't wear yoga pants b.c it's attractive to pedophiles. ...There are bigger issues in the world.
