Learn how to make jujube at home:

What takes?

1 kg of refined sugar

2 cups of water

4 tablespoons unflavored gelatin

1 box of gelatin flavor of your choice

sugar for sprinkling

How to make?

In a water bath, mix the water with the flavored and unflavored gelatin. After they dissolve, add the sugar and stir well, until the liquid is smooth. When it boils, continue stirring for about 5 minutes, then turn off the heat.

Grease a mold with margarine and pour the mixture over it. Leave it to rest for 24 hours so that it acquires that firm, gelatinous consistency typical of jujube. If you want, you can cover the mold with a kitchen towel to protect the candy from ants.

The next day, you will need to remove the dough from the pan (hence the importance of it being greased). Then just cut into squares or use a shaper to cut into the desired shape. If you want it to be even more consistent, just do this process after the dough has rested for two days.

Finish your homemade jelly beans by passing them one by one in sugar and wait for them to dry.
