Jujubes are supposed to be semi solid and not jelly like. It is not like jello. These are like candies.

Dear friend My recipe is good quality gelatin. Unprepared gelatin has an indefinite shelf-life as long as it is wrapped airtight and stored in a cool, dry place. • Too much sugar can inhibit gelatinization. The more sugar in the recipe, the softer the resultant gelatin will be.

Great recipe I love it. I can only find poor quality powdered gelatin in the states so mine end up as gummies, but they are the best gummies. Thanks! Here's the converted recipe for those using Imperial measurements. 3/4 Cup water. 1-1/2 Cups sugar (I suggest powdered, regular re-granulates for me) 2 Tbs gelatin 2 Tbs light corn syrup 1/2 Tsp vanilla extract. 1/4 Tsp flavoring Food coloring Mix sugar and 1/2 cup water in pot, stir well. Bring to boil until 239°F. remove from heat. Soften gelatin with remaining water.(1/4 cup)Keep warm in a double boiler. Add to sugar mix and syrup. Add vanilla, flavor and color. place in greased molds and let set. Roll in sugar if desired. Again, thank you so much for the recipe!
