If using agar, add the water, pear, and apple to a small pot to boil. Pour agar into the water, whisking vigorously to dissolve. Take off heat to cool for 15 minutes, then proceed from step 6.
TIPS FOR PERFECT PRE-WORKOUT GUMMIES:
Leave your fruits unpeeled. This makes recipe prep so much easier — plus the peels provide fiber, micronutrients, and probiotics to make this pre-workout snack even more beneficial.
For the best texture, finely chop the apple and pear. Start by removing the core and stem and slicing into thin pieces. Cut each slice into a set of matchsticks, then chop the matchstick into tiny cubes.
If you don't own a silicone gummy bear mold, you can create gummy cubes with a glass baking dish. Line the dish with plastic wrap, pour gelatin into a thin layer, and slice it into cubes once it sets.
These gummies require refrigeration to stay fresh. Place them on a paper towel to absorb excess moisture, then store them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Leftover gummies can be frozen for up to two weeks in an airtight container.
