For orange:

For yellow:

For green:


Instructions

  1. For the purple and green colors, place the blueberries or spinach into a pan with the apple juice and bring to a simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes until the juice has turned either purple or green. Remove the fruit/spinach from the pan, making sure you keep the liquid in tact.
  2. If you are making the orange colored worms, blend together the peeled orange and the Tangerine Orange juice until smooth. Place into a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  3. Do a quick taste test. If you want you can add 1-2 Tbsp. maple syrup depending on your tastebuds. Also stir in the flavoring oil..
  4. At this point for all colors, stir in the agar powder and reduce to a simmer for 2 minutes. The agar should be completely dissolved by now. Whisk constantly.
  5. Remove from heat our into desired molds with a syringe* (I found a gummy worm mold that came with the syringe on Amazon).
  6. Refrigerate until sets, approximately 10 minutes.
  7. Keep chilled in the fridge for up to 1 week in an airtight container.

Notes

*If you do not have any fun molds, fear not. Simply line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper and pour the mix into the pan. Allow to set, remove from the pan and slice into thin, worm-like shapes.
