How to make elderberry gummies
1 cup elderberry syrup
½ cup hot water
¼ cup gelatin powder (I use this stuff, it’s awesome!)
Mix gelatin and elderberry syrup, then add in the hot water. Whisk until all the lumps are gone, then add to the molds. It really helps to have an extra person because you need to work fast getting the syrup into the molds or it will start thickening up and become a little harder to work with.
After all the molds are filled, refrigerate one hour or until they are firm.
Kids can take 2 gummies per day for prevention or 3-4 daily when sick. These will stay good for about 2-3 weeks in the refrigerator.
