  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup elderberry syrup
  • 1/4 cup gelatin


  • Heat 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan until hot but not boiling.
  • Put 1 cup elderberry syrup in a large bowl and gradually sprinkle 1/4 cup gelatin on top. While gradually sprinkling the gelatin on the elderberry syrup, stir very gently with a fork to combine, just enough to moisten the gelatin powder. Let the gelatin sit for a minute until it starts to gel a bit.
  • Add hot water to gelatin/syrup mixture and whisk together until well-mixed and gelatin has dissolved.
  • Pour mixture into molds (or use a small dropper to carefully drop into the molds).
  • Refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until firm.
  • Remove gummies from molds and place in an airtight container.
  • Store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.


We take a few of these daily (depending on the size of the mold you used, the amount will vary) if we've been exposed to illness.
