Chewy and fruity, jujube candy is one of the most popular childhood hits. Gelatine, coloring and fruit juices come together in this sugary delight.


  • Gelatin
  • sugar
  • Juices
  • food colours

Step by Step method

Sprinkle the gelatine on to the 1 cup of cold water and leave to soften. Cook water and sugar to a hard ball consistency (a drop of it dropped in a cupful of cold water should immediately form into a hard lump.) Take the syrup off the heat and add the gelatine, juices, and coloring at once. Mix and strain through a fine sieve. Pour into the prepared pan and leave to set. When firm, cut into desired sized shapes, roll in the sugar and serve.
