Ingredients
  • ⅔ cup dried elderberries
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen bing cherries
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger root
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3½ cups of water
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon gelatin
Instructions
  1. Mix everything but the honey and gelatin into a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat and simmer for 30-45 minutes until liquid has boiled about halfway down.
  3. Strain out the pulp.
  4. Mix the honey into your syrup, returning it to the heat if necessary to mix the honey in.
  5. Set aside 1 cup of elderberry syrup and pour the rest into a glass jar and tightly cap before placing in the fridge.
  6. Pour the set aside syrup back into the pan and bring to a quick boil.
  7. Remove from heat and stir in the gelatin until dissolved.
  8. Pour into silicone molds or a glass baking pan.
  9. Allow gummies to set then remove from molds.
  10. I typically give my toddler 3-5 a day. You will have to set your own serving size based on the size you make your gummies.
  11. Take the leftover syrup that you placed in the fridge as normal, or turn it into gummies later.
  12. Syrup lasts many months in the fridge. Gummies will last around 3-4 weeks.
