Jujubes…Tis The Season ….




These small, chewy, fruit-flavored sparkly squares reminds me of my childhood and are so fun to eat …

These fruity candies are very easy to prepare at home and Needless to say these are very addictive & you wont stop munching on them …
This is the basic recipe you will find on the internet for “Homemade Gumdrops” ..




I think one can even use agar agar instead of gelatin and can add food coloring and essence or essential oils for flavoring … ( I myself have not tried mak in these using agar agar )


Jujubes…Tis The Season ….

3 ounces flavored gelatin ( jello ) of your choice
1 cup sugar
1 envelope (2 teaspoons) unflavored gelatin {like Knox)
3/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
granulated sugar or to coat the jujubes
Prepare a 8-inch square pan by lining it with parchment paper .
2. In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients and Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly, boil for 1 minute
Immediately pour into prepared pan
Place in refrigerator for 3 hours or until firm
Loosen sides from pan with a spatula
Turn Gum Drops onto a cutting board
Cut out gum drops using a knife dipped in hot water to cut squares or a cookie cutter
Roll Gum Drops in extra sugar, set onto wax paper until slightly dry
Store in an airtight container..
