Right on!This pretty close to my method of making gummies, only I use a little less gelatin, and I use citric acid instead of sweetener. Makes them sour, but it's powerful stuff. A little goes a long way!
I swear, using the Instant Pot is the best way to do it! Well, it's the only way i've done it, so there's that. But it really is easy and foolproof. I've probably made 7-8 batches and I only had issues twice. Once when I did not let the mixture cool enough while stirring and the gummies kinda separated. The second issue happened when I sprayed the silicone molds with non-stick cooking spray, and two weeks later I noticed mold. Had to throw it all out. I don't spray any more. Just clean the molds really well after each use.
Have you ever tried the second infusion?
