5 cups water

1/8 cup granulated sugar

For Kale-Lime Gummy Layer:

When gummy is firm, remove from sheet pan, cut into rectangles and garnish with kale sugar.

For Kale Sugar:

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Spread pulp evenly on a half sheet pan and place in oven until dehydrated (1-2 hours). When dehydrated place in a small food processor with 1/8 cup granulated sugar. Sprinkle or dip gummy worms right before serving.
