DIRECTIONS

  • In a large sauce pan, soften gelatin in cold water 5 minutes.
  • Stir in boiling water until gelatin is dissolved.
  • Stir in sugar and bring mixture to a boil on medium-high heat.
  • Boil to 280 degrees on a candy thermometer about 25 minutes, stirring constantly. (You can also test the candy by dropping a small amount of candy into cold water. The candy is ready when it separates into hard threads that aren't brittle.)
  • Pour mixture into two foil lined and greased 8 x 8 inch pans.
  • To each pan add 1/2 teaspoon desired favouring and desired food color (if you want clear gumdrops, do not add color).
  • Stir until combined.
  • Refridgerate pans overnight.
  • Lift foil from the pan and remove from from the sides of the candy.
  • Using a knife dipped in hot water, cut gelatin mixture into 1-inch cubes.
  • Roll each cube in granulated sugar until well coated and allow to sit at room temperature two days to crystallize.
  • Store in airtight containers.
