Sweet and Sour Gummy Pumpkins

Products Used




    1. Lightly spray cooking oil on pumpkin molds and set aside.
    2. In a large bowl, combine juice and zest and allow to rest for 5 or so minutes to soften up the zest and release its flavorful oils.
    3. Sprinkle gelatin over the juice mixture, stir until completely combined then set aside.
    4. In a medium pot, combine water, sugar and salt and stir while bringing to a boil. Stop stirring when it begins to boil and keep it at a boil for 5 minutes.
    5. Pour sugar mixture over the gelatin mixture and stir until it is smooth and all gelatin has dissolved.
    6. Pour mixture into the mini pumpkin molds. (If you don’t have a pumpkin mold, line an 8 x 8 inch pan with tinfoil and very lightly oil. Pour mixture into prepared pan.) Let the mixture sit overnight.
    7. When ready to prepare, mix sugar and citric acid in a bowl.
    8. Remove pumpkin gumdrops from mold (or if using a pan, take pumpkin shaped fondant cutters and cut out shapes).  Coat each pumpkin gummy with sugar and citric acid mixture. Once coated, let the pumpkin gummies set for a day or so to really form a firm sour crust.
    9. Serve as a fun dessert or snack, or wrap in cellophane, tie with ribbon and use one of our free printable Thanksgiving gift tags for a gift.
    10. Can be stored at room temperature.
