DIY: Fermented Cod Liver Oil Gummies

 
 
Fermented cold liver oil is a traditional super food with far-reaching health benefits. Making friendly little gummies is one way to get the good stuff into your kids' bellies! Assuming you aren't taking care of a three month old and a two year old, you can whip these up in about thirty minutes.
 
Here's what you need...
 
6 tablespoons of gelatin
6 tablespoons of honey
6 tablespoons of fermented cod liver oil
2 scoops of Amazing Grass Kidz Superfood (totally optional, but it adds vitamins)
1 cup of juice (I prefer organic grape juice, but you can use your favorite.)
 
Spray the mold of your choice with coconut oil (or whatever cooking spray you have on hand). This helps you get the gummies out without tearing them apart. You can use ice cube trays or candy molds. (I use a gingerbread man mold.)
 
Add ingredients to a saucepan, and whisk together on low heat. I add the juice first and the gelatin last, that way everything gets mixed together before adding the gelatin. This step only takes a few minutes.
 
Pour into molds, then place them in the fridge for 15-20 minutes. If your molds are deep, then it may take a little longer. Store them in the fridge after popping them out of the molds. Assuming your gummies are approximately the size of an ice cube, each gummy is two servings. Sadly, I chop the gingerbread gummy guy in half to achieve my son's daily FCLO ration. RIP, you healthy little gummy guys!

  1. I just have a quick question. I have the FCLO w/High butter oil gel. Will this change the how much I will need for the recipe. Thank you so much for this recipe, I'm super excited to try it!

    1. I haven't tried it with the butter oil -- so I can't say for sure -- but I imagine that the ratios would be the same. As long as you have enough gelatin, it should all work out in the end! Good luck!

  2. How do you know how many of gummies to give? I am using a gummy bear size mold! Thanks!

  3. One serving size of FCLO is 2ml, so I'd say probably 2 or 3 of the gummy bears.
