    According to the Rules of the Interwebs, you shouldn’t post someone else’s entire recipe, only part of it with a link to the rest, unless you’ve changed the recipe up bigtime.

    More gummy goodness…
    Apple Cider Jelly Candy from Lisa at The Frugal Vegan
    Vegan Gummy Worms from Lady Make
    Pumpkin Pâte de Fruits from Hannah at BitterSweet

    Note: Most of these gummy candy recipes turn out best if left to set overnight.

    A note about agar and gelatin alternatives from PETA:
    “Keep in mind that highly acidic ingredients, such as lemons, strawberries, oranges, and other citrus fruits, may require more agar-agar than the recipe calls for. Also, enzymes in fresh mangoes, papaya, and pineapple break down the gelling ability of the agar-agar so that it will not set. Cooking these fruits before adding them to a recipe, however, neutralizes the enzymes so that the agar-agar can set.”
