Sweet-N-Sour cranberry gummies

Today, I am making use of some jellied cranberry sauce that I have on hand in my pantry, because it needs to be used before it expires. To make the gummies, I will be using my dehydrator.

Okay, so you'll know, I didn't actually use sugar to coat my gummies, instead I used Splenda. Should you want to make this recipe, use whatever type of granulated sweetener that you prefer coating the cranberry gummies with.

Sweet-N-Sour cranberry gummies/Gin Lee


  • 14-ounce can of Ocean Spray jellied cranberry sauce, or your preferred jellied brand
  • About ¼ cup of Splenda, sugar, or sweetener of your choice for coating the pieces of cranberry pieces.


½ teaspoon of citric acid can be mixed with the sweetener that you use. The citric acid will make the gummies even more sour. I don't add it to mine and the reason why is that the cranberries are already really tart. If you choose to use citric acid, add it to the granulated sweetener after the gummies are finished drying. Then roll the gummies in the coating.


Cutting the jellied cranberry sauce/Gin Lee

Open the can of jellied cranberry sauce, place the formed sauce on a cutting board, or flat plate. With a knife, slice the jellied sauce. (You'll see the ridges outlined in the jellied sauce and those lines are what you'll follow to slice.)

Now, you can leave the slices in big circles, or use a knife to slice the circles into smaller sizes, or even use different shaped molds to cut the sauce with. I just sliced the circles into fourths with a knife.

Place the cut pieces of jellied cranberry sauce on silicone dehydrating trays and place them inside the dehydrator.

You'll dehydrate them at a temperature of 145 degrees F until they have a gummy textured consistency. It can take up to twenty-four hours, depending on your dehydrator.

When the gummies are finished drying, coat them with your preferred sweetener.

If you prefer not to coat your gummies in a granulated sweetener, dust them with a light coating of cornstarch to prevent them from sticking together.

Place the gummies in an airtight container and refrigerate, or store them inside the freezer for up to six months.

It is within my mission to ensure that readers will receive original and valuable news content. The content will be written about a large variety of topics. I find my inspiration in the art of design, illustrations, as well as writing content for viewers like you! As an author, designer, artist, animal rescuer, food blogger, organic gardener, freelance journalist, and contributor, I strive to encourage my readers to learn about topics that they may not be fluent in, as well as share my common knowledge about important elements of interest. Because, as circumstances have it, I do live in an extraordinarily rural area, of which I'm proud to profess. Writing for NewsBreak is an enlightened and enjoyable experience. It's been a collection of milestones for me. Concurrently, you (as well as I) have touched base on so many news levels, and we have all learned from the research I've done on a variety of topics. Although this is just a small token of my appreciation to all of my readers and followers, I want to say with a happy heart, and my arms wide open- Thank you for being you! And thank you for liking, subscribing, and following me! It means more to me than mere words can say! Addressing the rudeness in the room (in a way of speaking). Rudeness and hatefulness is why I turn the comments off on the articles in which I write. The world has enough vulgarity, hatefulness, and arrogance without it having any help. Since having the simple courtesy of manners is lacking, and sharing words of kindness does not abide in a few people. Those few people ruin what's supposed to be educational and an enjoyable experience for all others. I don't have the comments turned off because I can't handle ill manners. I turn them off because I do have children and young adults that are followers. Potty mouths, vulgarity, and hate are not acceptable. Sometimes I get busy and I don't get to turn off the comment notifications until a few hours have passed. This is why sometimes a few comments squeak through. I apologize to those of you who generally are very sweet and I also apologize to my followers who have been a witness to others being rude and malicious. I hope that as my followers, you'll be understanding of the measures that I have to take. Please be kind to one another.
