These sweet n’ sour hibiscus / ginger paleo gelatin gummies are a great snack on the autoimmune protocol. Super quick to make and so much fun to eat afterwards! They are packed with healing gelatin and make a wonderful little snack to have on hand to safely satisfy your sweet cravings. Keep them in the fridge and enjoy as many as you want!
I am using silicon molds to give my gelatin gummies fun shapes. I bought some off of Amazon over the years, and occasionally I buy them in home goods stores. If you don’t have molds, that’s all right. You can still make delicious gummies using a large dish (like a rectangular glass baking dish or even a cookie baking sheet with raised edges) lined with parchment paper. Follow the instructions in the recipe and once the gelatin has set, simply cut up small squares with a knife.
The recipe calls for ginger juice. I find mine at our local Vitamin Cottage store. I am pretty sure you can find it at Wholefoods, or online! I like the brand The Ginger People. They offer organic, high quality products and they are working on having their entire line Non-GMO accredited. Organic ginger juice is really convenient to have in your kitchen pantry and the perfect alternative if you don’t have any fresh ginger on hand!

- Cover and infuse for 5 minutes.
- Drain the flowers with a small strainer.
- Return the liquid to the pot, add honey, ginger, and mix well with a whisk.
- Sprinkle the gelatin over the liquid's surface and wait for the gelatin to soften and dissolve. After a few minutes, mix with the whisk to make sure that the gelatin is well dissolved without any clumps.
- Pour immediately in the silicon mold (or a rectangular baking dish lined with parchment paper).
- Let cool down and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
- To unmold your gummies, simply push on the underside of the mold with your fingers and the gummies will pop out.
