Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies

My pork belly finally finished curing and was ready for the smoker yesterday. I used a mixture of hickey and cherry wood that gave the bacon a very unique flavor. I’m so happy how it turned out! I’ll share all of what I did later this week.

This weekend I’ve been teasing these gummies on my instagram. I really wanted to add more apple cider vinegar (ACV) to my diet after reading all the benefits (here, here and here), but I don’t like the overpowering taste. I’ve tried diluting it in water and adding it to smoothies, but I didn’t like either of these. After making strawberry and blueberry gummies the other week, I thought why not put ACV in gummies. These little gummies do double duty. You get the benefits of grass-fed gelatin plus all the benefits of ACV. The apple cider doesn’t completely mask the ACV flavor, but it tames it down significantly even my 4-year-old niece devoured these! Much to my sister’s shock. I have been eating two of these a day to get my recommend dose of ACV. A couple of notes: to get the maximum benefits of ACV you want to make sure you buy the raw version with the “mother.” It will have little string bits and be less translucent. Also make sure you warm to mixture to an easy bubble then removed directly from heat as to not break down the ACV. 

Ingredients 
1 1/2 cups apple cider or juice, no sugar added
4 tbls grass-fed gelatin (I used this brand)
Directions
Heat apple cider and ACV in a small sauce pot over medium heat. Once mixture starts to bubble, remove from heat. Whisking continuously add gelatin one tablespoon at a time.Pour into molds. I used these cute flower ones.Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.
Enjoy!

      Hi! I did some research, and there isn’t too much out there. I agree you don’t want the mixture to reach a boil because I thought the same thing about it losing nutrients! You want it to just start to bubble then remove from heat. The biggest part is using raw ACV with the mother. Thanks for the comment! I am going to add some of this info into the post!

    What do you do after you whisk in the gelatin? You pour the mixture into molds? Refridge till it sets?
    Yours are those cute flowers. Is that a mold of some kind? I’m confused what you do after you whisk in the gelatin.
    Thanks!

    I just tried these, and they’re delicious!! I needed a way to get ACV into my diet. Now I just have to try and not eat them all. Thank you!
