Blueberry Gummies

Gelatin is a fantastic food-as-medicine ingredient for healing the structures and tissues of the body and aiding in detoxification. These gummy snacks are fun to eat and good for you. For sour gummies, omit the honey and add 1/3 cup organic lemon juice to the blueberries before heating. For flavor variation, substitute other berries for the blueberries.
