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.
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)

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.
