How to Make Elderberry Syrup Gummies

For some kiddos, trying to introduce elderberry syrup is like getting a cat to take a bath. There’s lots of scratching, screaming and protesting no matter what trick you try to pull out of your hat. For others, it’s down the hatch and a smile, asking for more.

Can you relate?

Once I started to realize that my daughter had a love of all things gummy, I tried my hand at elderberry syrup gummies.

It was super easy and a HUGE hit!

The great news is that gummies taste like candy and the kids can feel empowered all on their own if you keep them on a lower shelf in the fridge.

Ingredients
1/2 cup Trisha’s Elderberries elderberry syrup. Separate into 2 parts,1/4c each.
3 tbsp grass fed gelatin (I prefer the Vital Proteins brand)
1/3 cup very hot water
1 tsp melted coconut oil to grease molds

How to make elderberry syrup gummies, step by step:

  1. Grease gummy molds with melted coconut oil.
  2. Pour 1/4 cup of Trisha’s Elderberries elderberry syrup into a large mixing bowl.  
  3. Add gelatin on top of Trisha’s Elderberries elderberry syrup and allow to bloom for 5 minutes.
  4. Pour 1/3 cup of extremely hot water over elderberry and gelatin.
  5. Whisk quickly until gelatin until it’s dissolved. 
  6. Pour in the next1/4 cup of Trisha’s Elderberries elderberry syrup.
  7. Pour mixture into molds.
  8. Refrigerate for 2+ hours.
  9. Store Trisha’s Elderberries elderberry syrup  gummies in a glass jar.
  10. Keep refrigerated.

Unfortunately, gummies don’t last nearly as long as your elderberry syrup will – 2 weeks MAX in your fridge.  You can potentially extend the shelf life of your gummies if you add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to the recipe above.

Serving suggestions will vary based on the size of molds you choose. Use a plastic pipette to measure out 5ml for 1 teaspoon gummies.
