Fruity snacks was a favorite snack around here until I took away corn syrup from our snacks. So...I found a new recipe to make fruity snacks and they have become a favorite around our house. Here is the recipe that I tweaked:
1 cup mixed berries
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 cup fruit juice
2 envelopes gelatin
In a small saucepan over medium heat combine the berries and water. Bring to a boil and cook until berries are soft, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a blender, add banana and puree. Return to pot and add applesauce. Return to a boil, then remove from heat, cover and let sit.
In another bowl, sprinkle gelatin over fruit juice and let stand for one minute. Add hot fruit mixture and stir until gelatin completely dissolves.
Pour into 8 X 8 dish or into molds. Refrigerate until firm. Cut into blocks.
