2 1/2 tbsp granular sugar

 

The Rainbow Varieties of Gummy Bear Flavors


Pear Gummy Bears
1/4 cup tea concentrate
1/4 cup white grape juice
2 tbsp gelatine
2 drops green food dye

Cranberry Pear Gummy Bears
1/4 cup tea concentrate
1/4 cup sweetened cranberry juice
2 tbsp gelatine
2 drops red food dye

Pineapple Pear Gummy Bears
1/4 cup tea concentrate
1/4 cup pineapple juice
2 tbsp gelatin
2 drops yellow food dye

Blueberry Pear Gummy Bears
1/4 cup tea concentrate
1/4 cup blueberry juice
2 tbsp gelatin
2 drops blue food dye

Directions

  1. Use four small bowls and measure out 1/4 cup of each juice into the separate bowls. Place two drops of the corresponding food dye for each gummy flavor. Set bowls aside.
  2. Bring water to a boil in a kettle and pour 1 cup of boiling water over the four Stash Asian Pear Harmony tea bags. Add 2 1/2 tbsp sugar and let the tea bags steep for 2 minutes.
  3. Remove the tea bags and stir the concentrate to dissolve the sugar entirely.
  4. Place the gummy molds onto a cookie sheet.
  5. Pour 1/4 cup of the boiling hot tea concentrate into one fruit juice bowl, stir well, and then sprinkle 2 tbsp of gelatin over the top. Mix well until all the gelatin has dissolved. If bubbles form on top, scoop them off and discard them. Working quickly using the eyedropper tool, fill one tray of gummy bear molds. Repeat this step for the following three flavors. If your tea concentrate starts to cool off, heat it on the stove or in the microwave. *You want the tea concentrate to be almost boiling to activate the gelatin.*
  6. Place the cookie sheet into the fridge and cool for 25 minutes until the gummies become firm. Remove the gummy bears from the molds and place them into an air-tight container. Keep in the refrigerator for optimal freshness. 

Enjoy!

Note: we used bear molds that produce gummy bears a bit smaller than the traditional size, but this recipe is flexible and will work for any mold you have at home.
