Tart Cherry and Plum Gummies

Naturally tart and sweet fruit make this Tart Cherry and Plum Gummies the perfect snack or dessert. This recipe is allergy friendly (gluten, dairy, seafood, nut, egg, and soy free) and suits the autoimmune protocol (AIP), and paleo diets.

Before AIP, I was a bit of a sugar addict. I loved Swedish fish, sour patch kids and gummy bears. I could go on and on about gummy candy. It’s something that I really missed initially but then I started making my own using fruit, gelatin and honey. These Tart Cherry and Plum Gummies are sweet and tart, just what you want in gummies. It’s not overly sugary or artificial like the store-bought kind. It’s just the right amount of sweetness.

These are really easy to make. There are different options for molds. You can either get silicone molds or just use a baking dish and cut the gummies into bite size pieces. If you decide on silicone molds, make sure they are food grade. I used a mold from Amazon, which are no longer available, but there is a huge variety of molds available. I’ve started a nice collection of plastic molds. I’ve got my eye on these lego/robot and diamond molds.

When you’re filling your molds, make sure to not overfill. It makes it hard to transport to the refrigerator, as it’s more likely to spill. It also makes it harder to get them out of the mold once it’s hardened.

If you’re using a silicone mold then it’s important that you place the molds on a stable baking sheet before you fill them with liquid. The liquid is super sticky from the gelatin and sugar so that will help to prevent spills.

Thank you to Stemilt Growers for supplying the fresh cherries for this post.

Thai Basil Shrimp

A few days ago I shared a Thai Basil Beef recipe. It’s absolutely delicious. My husband suggested that I try to adapt that recipe to the autoimmune protocol diet. Once he tried my beef dish, he wanted the shrimp version which turned out to be a great idea! I think this Thai Basil Shrimp recipe is even more delicious than the beef and the basil flavor really shines with the delicate shrimp. It’s absolutely wonderful and a great weeknight dish.

Since this is a Thai recipe, Thai basil is usually used, but I had a hard time finding Thai basil. I even went to an Asian supermarket and couldn’t find it! I used Sweet Basil as a substitute but I encourage you to seek out Thai Basil and give it a try. It’s a little spicy compared to the sweet version but equally delicious.

Since this is such a simple recipe, you don’t need to do much prep. I whipped out my new cutting board from Uncommon Goods. It would make a great breadboard but works for small chopping jobs like I needed for this recipe.

I’ve started hoarding cutting boards, so thanks to Uncommon Goods for enabling my habit! They also sent along mineral oil to keep my collection of cutting boards in great condition. Mineral oil helps keep the cutting boards from drying out and looking new. You need a specific oil for wood boards otherwise the oil could turn rancid and ruin the board.

Uncommon Goods has so many cool and unusual artisan products. This is an especially great shop if you are looking for something different for your home or to use as a gift (father’s day and graduation season are fast approaching).
