Pumpkin Spice Gummies

1/2 Cup Pumpkin Puree

1 Cup Apple Juice Concentrate

1 1/2 Tablespoons Agar Powder

1 Teaspoon Pumpkin Spice Extract or Pumpkin Spice Blend

Have four mini pumpkin candy molds at the ready, or a comparable shape. Alternately, you can line an 8 x 8-inch square baking pan with foil and plan to simply cut out gummy squares. Just be sure to lightly grease the foil before proceeding.

Whisk all of the ingredients in a small saucepan until smooth and set over medium heat. Stir gently but consistently; you should start to feel the mixture thicken almost instantly. Continue scraping the bottom and sides of the pan as you stir to prevent sticking or burning, until the mixture is sticky but spoonable. It will be so dense that it doesn't quite come to a boil, but should bubble up around the edges quite a bit.

Smooth the mixture into your molds as quickly as possible, is the candy sets up very quickly. Let stand at room temperature until fully set; at least 20 - 30 minutes. Pop the pumpkins out of the molds and trim away any excess, if necessary. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 5 - 7 days... If they don't mysteriously disappear first..
