Recipe: Raspberry Applesauce Gumdrops

Applesauce Gumdrops

Adapted from Wildheart

2 cups raspberry applesauce (I used Santa Cruz Organic)

1/2 tsp each cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves

1/2 cup cold water

2 cups sugar (I used Sugar in the Raw)

3 envelopes unflavored gelatin

  1. If using unrefined sugar, crush it with mortar & pestle
  2. Mix the sugar, applesauce, and spices.
  3. In a small pan, mix the water and gelatin.
  4. Heat over low until gelatin dissolves (or, heat in microwave for 20 seconds and then stir).
  5. Stir the gelatin mix into the applesauce mix.
  6. Line a 9×13 pan with wax paper.
  7. Spread in the applesauce/gelatin mix.
  8. Refrigerate until firm.
  9. Right before serving, cut into 1/2″ cubes (18 across x 26 down).
  10. Roll each cube in sugar, it prevents weeping. (Don’t do this too long before serving or sugar will melt and leave you with a liquid mess.)
