Equipment

  • Stick Blender (or whisk...but stick blender works best!)
  • 3-quart Pot
  • Silicone candy mold OR Square glass baking pan

Ingredients
  

  • 1 3/4 cups Elderberry Juice
  • 1/4 cup Honey Raw honey is ideal, but don't heat it over 95 degrees
  • 4 Tbsp Gelatin, plain

Instructions
 

  • Heat elderberry juice to steaming.
  • Sprinkle gelatin over top of juice, then puree with stick blender.
  • If using raw honey, let liquid gelatin mixture cool down to 95 degrees before adding raw honey to preserve it's health benefits. Mix well!
    (If using pasteurized honey or another sweetener, you can add it before the gelatin.
  • Pour into mold of choice, either silicone candy molds OR square glass baking pan.
  • Wait until Elderberry Gummies are fully gelled. You can place in the fridge or freezer to speed up the process.
  • Remove from molds. If using a baking pan, slice into 1-tsp (recommended "dose" for kids), or 1-Tbsp (recommended "dose" for adults).
  • Store gummies in refrigerator. General recommendation is to take 1 per day when healthy, or every 2-4 hours (as needed) when actively sick to support your immune system.
