unflavored gelatin 3 tbsp (refer notes)
sugar 1 1/2cup
salt a pinch
lemon juice  1 1/2 tbsp
coarsely ground sugar 1/2 cup
food colors & essences 2-3 drops each


Method
-Soak gelatin in 1/2 cup room temperature or cold water for 15 minutes.
-Boil 3/4 cup water in a deep heavy pan on high heat,add sugar and salt.Stir and let it dissolve.
-Add the soaked gelatin in the boiling water and stir until it melts.
-Wait till the mixture boils again.Once boiled,set your timer to 15 minutes and keep stirring.(refer notes)
-Add the light corn syrup and continue to stir another 1 1/2 minutes.
-Add in the lemon juice and switch off the flame.
-Remove as much foam as possible formed on top of the boiled mixture and transfer to another bowl.
-Divide the mixture in different bowls and add the food color,essences.
-Pour into small trays or bowls each flavor keeping in mind the bowl used decides the thickness of jujips.


-Refrigerate for 16-18 hours and then wait till solidified.Once solidified,run along the edges.Sprinkle some sugar on top to prevent sticking and turn on a cutting board.Cut into pieces and sprinkle some amounts of sugar to coat.
-Serve and store at room temperature.

Servings 25-30 jujips


NOTES
* If you are using sachets of gelatin use 4 of them.
* The boiling mixture has a tendency of boiling over,so keep stirring the mixture.
* Liquid glucose is replaced with corn syrup in US.If you are living in India,you can use liquid glucose.
* If you use coating granulated sugar in US ,it is finely granulated.The granulated sugar in India needs to be crushed first and then coated.
* The color-flavor combination ; yellow food color & banana extract, red food color & strawberry extract, orange food color & orange extract, yellow food color & mango extract.
