Homemade Jujubes Recipe - Vegan & Gelatin Free Option Included


Jujubes was on my to do list for quite sometime. Finally i made yesterday and it turned out pretty good. My little one loved it. I used agar agar in this and the jujubes turned out to be more melt in mouth. But if you use gelatin it will be more chewy and gummy.

This is a delicious and kids friendly recipe.Your kids will love it for sure. You can half the batch for lesser quantity. For vegans and vegetarians you can use agar agar powder in this recipe which will give perfect jujubes.



I will soon share a fruit snack recipe which is made using fresh fruit juices.



Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.



Preparation Time : 15 mins

Cooking Time : 30 mins
Setting Time : 12 to 14 hours

Ingredients:


Sugar - 2 1/2 cups / 500 grams
Water - 1/2 cup + 1/2 cup
Liquid Glucose or Corn Syrup -1/2 cup / 150 grams
Agar Agar Powder or Gelatin - 50 grams
Lemon Juice - 3 tblspn (see notes)
Food Colouring (yellow, red, green)
Essence - Raspberry, Strawberry and Pineapple

Buy agar agar powder, corn syrup for making this




Method:

Take gelatin or china grass in a bowl, add in 1/2 cup of water and mix well. Set aside for 10 mins.

In a heavy bottom pan, take sugar, 1/2 cup of water, glucose  and mix well. Put it on heat and cook on low heat till the sugar melts. Bring it to a boil.

Boil the syrup until it reaches the hard ball stage (125°C) or you can check this by using a clean spoon when the syrup is dropped into cold water it may be formed into a hard ball.

Now add in lemon juice and mix well. Boil it well.

Now add in gelatin,mix and stir till it is melted.

Now divide this into three bowls and food colour and essence.

Now pour it in greased bowls and let it dry outside overnight.

Now cut into small pieces, and roll it in sugar.

Store in a air tight container in fridge..

Notes:


1)Instead of lemon juice use citric acid.

2)Using agar agar will give melt in mouth jujubes. Gelatin will give gummy jujubes
3)Cook sugar syrup till it reaches hard ball stage, so it gives perfect gummy.
