Making homemade candy does not have to be hard. For this sweet and chewy orange candy, you do not even need a candy thermometer. With just a few ingredients, you can have these candies finished in 30 minutes!
All you will need to make our tart and sweet chewy Orange Jelly Candy are these ingredients:-Freshly squeezed sour orange juice-White granulated sugar-Agar agar-Powdered sugar-Orange or yellow food coloring gel
To begin, use an orange juicer to squeeze one cup of orange juice from the sour oranges. Strain the juice through a fine mesh sieve to remove any orange pieces.
Next, mix agar agar, orange juice, and both sugars in a large saucepan. Stir well before adding food coloring. Then, cook on medium-high, stirring constantly, until it is boiling. After, lower the heat and let it simmer until thick, which takes four or five minutes.
Now, pour the mixture into a 10-inch pan lined with parchment and chill for two hours. Once it chills, cover 1/2 inch of the top edge and sprinkle powdered sugar on the rest. Cut the mix down the middle and make two logs. Slice into 1/2-inch pieces and they are ready to eat!
