4 cups fresh, ripe watermelon, cut into chunks (or 2 cups juice)
7 Tablespoons grass fed gelatin
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 Tablespoons THC Infused Cannabis Tincture
Optional, depending on the sweetness / ripeness of your watermelon: 1/4 cup raw honey, Stevia, or Agave
Blend the cut-up watermelon in a blender, then strain to remove pulp.
Measure out the gelatin powder you will need.
Add half of the juice you are using to a bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over the juice.
Leave the juice & gelatin mixture alone for a few minutes: the gelatin will dissolve (or if we’re getting fancy, “bloom”)
Take the remaining fruit juice and warm it gently. Warm it, don’t let it get hot or simmer.
Slide the grass fed gelatin & juice mixture into the pan with the rest of the warm juice on the stovetop. Whisk until everything is combined and smooth – there shouldn’t be any visible bits of gelatin.
Stir in any extra ingredients – in this recipe those will be raw honey and fresh lemon juice.
Now your homemade gummies are ready to pour into molds (I used these cute gingerbread shapes) so that they can actually be gummies once they have refrigerated and set!
