Which Ingredients Do You Need?
- Infused Coconut Oil = 2/3 cup
- Flavoured Jello = 1 Pack (3 Oz)
- Unflavoured Knox Gelatine Packs = ¾ Ounce Packets
- Sunflower Lecithin = 2 tablespoons (granulated or liquid)
- Lemon Juice = 1 tablespoon
- Water or Fruit Fluid = 1 Cup
- Flavourings = 5-10 drops
Which Dab Tools You Would Need?
You would need silicone gummy moulds, a whisk, a tiny bowl, stove top pots (large, medium and small), quantity measuring cups and spoons, an easy pour funnel and a squeeze bottle. Gather all your dab tools and ingredients, and make gummies move quite fast so that everything is set and ready.
The initial step is to tint your gelatine. For this, you need to mix half a cup of water or fruit fluid with powdered gelatine. When you feel a gel-like texture, it shows that it is completely mixed with gelatine. Keep it aside.
Now, you have to melt the imbued coconut oil. For this, you will need a double boiler. Fill in a large and medium pot with water and place them on each other. Then, heat the double boiler and completely melt the cannabis coconut oil.
After the coconut oil is completely melted, you can include the lecithin. If you opt for lecithin, ensure that it is completely mixed with oil, and no clumps are left. Keep it on low heat while you prepare for the next step.
In the other pot, pour the leftover half cup of water or juice, and bring it to a boil on medium-high heat. After this, you can mix the Jello pack, and include your mould inhibitor.
Now, you need to combine the contents of two pots. Carefully and gradually pour the jello mixture into the double boiler comprising of cannabis oil, and beat until well combined.
You have bloomed gelatine, that you need to put in the mixture. Include the bloomed gelatine in the double boiler, and add a few drops of flavouring.
Now, you should continue whisking it steadily for a few minutes to ensure there are no clumps.
After 10 minutes, you need to place your mixture in the moulds. It can be quite hectic as you will have to do it quickly so that the mixture does not begin to harden before you transfer it to the mould. You can use any easy pour funnel as it will ease the procedure, and reduce waste and mess. Alternatively, you can use a plastic squeeze bottle that you can use to fill the pipe.
When you purchase gummy moulds, you may get a dropper along with it. Try not to use it, as it may make the procedure sluggish and tiresome.
So, whichever technique you choose to fill in the mould, do it rapidly so that the mixture does not begin to harden.
After the mould is occupied, you must leave them for at least 30 minutes before you remove them.
Cautiously remove the gummy candies from the cast and keep them on a wire baking rack or plastic cutting board.
You need to air dry it for 2-3 days before you shift it into an airtight jar and place it in the fridge. If you see any moisture still left in the gummy candies, you should dry it out as damp surfaces are home to mould. However, fully-dried models are perfect to store in the fridge for 7-14 days. If you detect any mould, it’s time to discard them.
Hence, air drying is quite essential, you can touch it to know if they are completely dry or not. They are firm even more when you initially remove them from silicone moulds. So, if you place them in an airtight jar and notice compression that forms within the Tupperware, it has not completely dried.
Which Air Drying Hack You Should Use?
If you have pets or children at home, you should not leave them to air dry unattended. So, it’s best to find a safe and secure place to leave it for drying. However, if you can’t put them anywhere else, then make sure you just don’t forget them inside while pre-heating the oven.
You can also consider using a food dehydrator to fast-track the drying procedure. Just ensure that no induction heating comes to cannabis vaporizers, otherwise, the essence might melt. You should know that using a food dehydrator is certainly the best option. You may search in your local market or online about the different food dehydrators available.
