what is it about experiments in the kitchen?
this weekend i tried a simple recipe for making my own gummi bears. i have a friend who has celiac disease, and she really misses gummi bears. so i endeavored to make some that she could enjoy. this is about the easiest candy recipe i’ve ever seen, and worked like a dream. however, i want to keep experimenting so that vegans can also have them (this used gelatin, which is i am sorry to say, ground up animal bones people). i’d also like to do something about all those chemicals and colorings that fill jello. so i’m looking for more recipes that use agar and fruit juice… and hopefully soon enough i can use Local fruits and make a gummi bear filled with thoughtful-eating ingredients (unprocessed, organic, nutritious, Local!), while opening up to more exciting flavors.
