- 1 1/4 cups Montmorency tart cherry juice
- 1/4 cup unflavored gelatin
- 1/3 cup honey
- In a small bowl, stir together the juice and the gelatin until the gelatin is fully dissolved.
- Pour the mixture into a small saucepan on low-medium heat and add the honey. Continue stirring until well mixed but making sure not to boil.
- Remove from heat, allowing it to slightly cool before pouring into a rectangular hard candy sheet mold (use a sheet mold tray with 64 molds of 3/4″ x 1″).
- Allow it to cool for about 10 minutes or until it begins to gel before transferring into the refrigerator. Place in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes to allow it to set.
