Healthy Honey, Lemon, and Ginger Gummies

I had wanted to post these healthy honey, lemon, and ginger gummies at the start of the cold and flu season, but life kind of got in the way and I didn’t get the chance.  These homemade gummies are the perfect thing for when you have a sore throat and need a little bit of comfort.  They also work well with children who may not like drinking a hot honey and lemon tea.

PLEASE DON’T GIVE THESE TO CHILDREN UNDER 1! Not only could these pose a chocking hazard to them, but babies under 1 should not eat honey in any form (be it raw or in cooked foods) as it contains a bacteria that can cause lead to infant botulism.

Make sure you follow my dealing with children board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own healthy honey, lemon, and  gummies you will need:

  • Saucepan
  • Silicone mould*
  • 2 cups water
  • ¼ cup lemon
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 4 tablespoons gelatine
  • 1-2in of ginger cut up

*If you don’t have any small silicone moulds, you can simply line a tray with some foil and pour the mixture into that.  Then when it has set you can cut it up into cubes.

Start by adding your water and ginger to saucepan and bring it to the boil for about 20 minutes.  You should be left with about 1 cups worth of ginger water.

Scoop out the ginger.  I am sure you could probably use the ginger from something else, but I simply discarded mine.

Add the lemon and honey to the remaining water and bring it back to the boil.  When it starts to boil remove it from the heat.

Slowly add the gelatine, one tablespoon at a time.  Make sure that everything is mixed in together really well.  You don’t want to have any clumps.

When everything is dissolved, carefully add the mixture to the moulds and set it in the fridge for a few hours to set.

Once they are ready you can store them in a container in the fridge.  I found that if you left them out, they begun to melt.
