Other Sweetener OptionS
We feel that keeping gummies as natural as possible is important. We recommend, for those willing to go the extra step, to purchase a juicer and make fresh juices. This cuts down on store bought product’s reliance on artificial sweeteners and additives. For store bought juice we love the brand Simply, but really any juice could work well enough, just make sure they are pulp free.
If you need to use real sugar in a pinch it is best to add small half teaspoons at a time and adjust according to sweetness preferences. If you prefer a sugar substitute like Stevia, only the liquid drops will work (not powder). Syrups like agave and maple work just fine though the flavor may be strong so adjust measurements again according to taste.
You can store the gummies in their molds or any other container just make sure they are covered. It is also important to remember that since these gummies are CBD infused, it is preferable they remain in a cool and dark place, away from direct sunlight.
