Homemade Raspberry Wine Gum

Homemade wine gum can be hard to resist when it is
made with real berries.

Ingredients
250 g [8,8 oz] sugar
(200 g [7 oz] for the gel and 50 g [1,8] for decoration)
200 g [7 oz] raspberries
1.5 dl [0,3 pt] water
3 g [0,1 oz] citric acid
15 g [0,5 oz] pectin

Approach

[1] Set aside 50 g / 1,8 oz of sugar for decoration.

[2] Boil half of the sugar (100 g / 3,5 oz) with the raspberries, water and citric acid and let the mix boil under cover for a few minutes.

[3] Put a clean, wet kitchen towel in a sieve, and let the juice run through the cloth and into a saucepan. Do not squeeze or press it through the cloth, because that will make the juice cloudy.

[4] Bring  the juice to a boil. Mix in the pectin with three tablespoons of the remaining sugar. Pour the pectin and sugar mixture into the boiling juice while stirring.

[5] Turn off the heat, add the rest of the sugar and stir until all the sugar has dissolved. When the juice is clear again, pour it into a baking paper lined box or mould measuring 20 x 10 cm / 8 x4 in. If it’s larger, your wine gums cubes will be smaller.

[6] Leave the gel to set, preferably till the next day.

[7] Cut the wine gum piece into about 2 cm / 4/5 in cubes. Turn the cubes in sugar.

[8] Store in an airtight box wuth baking paper between the layers.
