Homemade Peachy O’s

I love those little sugary, peachy flavored gummies. Yesterday I was trying to think about how I could use up the rest of the jar of peaches that I had used for the Peach Cobbler Muffins and I came up with the idea to attempt to make my own peachy gummies. You can make these with or without sugar.

What you need:

  • 1 c. peaches
  • 4 packets unflavored gelatin
  • sugar(optional)

A picture of what you need. Peaches, gelatin, saucepan, and 8x8 pan.

Puree the peaches in a food processor or something similar. (I love my Magic Bullet, found it for $1.50 at a garage sale!)

Put the peaches in a saucepan and heat them up. Wisk in the gelatin. Once it gets to a boil, let it bubble(while stirring) for 2 minutes.

Pour the peach mixture into the 8x8 pan. It does not need to be greased. Stick them in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

After the gummies have set, slice them and take them out of the pan. If you want, you can add sugar just before eating, otherwise just eat them as peach gummies, they don't really need any sugar! *Note: don't store the ones coated in sugar as the sugar will get watery. Store them without being sugar coated.

I just realized you used canned not fresh peaches, so do you think it’ll work with fresh peaches? Would I need to add some sugar? Thanks!

Yes it will work either way, you may not need to add in sugar since you will be putting it on the outside.

Hello everyone,
How long do these last before they expire?

I wouldn’t keep these longer than about a week.
