Bright orange kumquats give these gorgeous gummies their all-natural sunny glow and a puckery, sweet-and-sour flavor. To play up the tartness, a citric acid coating adds a burst of sour flavor and a craveable quality. Kung Fu Girl Riesling has notes of white peach, mandarin orange, and apricot that balance the tang. Want to gift these? The sugar-citric acid coating helps keep these gummies from sticking together when packaged in cellophane bags; pop in a silica gel packet to absorb moisture and keep your candy structurally sound and looking beautiful.

Gummies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 2 weeks. Dip in the sugar–citric acid mixture up to 4 hours before serving.
Find citric acid near the canning supplies at your grocery store. This recipe was tested using a 140-cavity mold by Palksky, available at amazon.com.
