Units Scale
  • 1 cup elderberry syrup
  • 3 tablespoons of gelatin
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • Honey to taste (optional)


    1. Prepare your elderberry syrup: If you’re making your own elderberry syrup, follow a trusted recipe or package instructions.

    1. Mix the gelatin: In a bowl, add the gelatin and pour the hot water over it. Stir well until the gelatin dissolves completely. If you’re using a sweetener, mix it in at this stage.

    1. Combine the elderberry syrup and gelatin: Gradually add the elderberry syrup to the gelatin mixture, stirring continuously. This step ensures a smooth and well-mixed gummy base.

    1. Pour into molds: Place the molds on a pan to make them easier to move before filling. Use a dropper or a small pitcher to pour the mixture into your gummy molds. Be careful not to overfill them.

    1. Chill and set: Place the molds in the refrigerator for at least 1-2 hours, or until the gummies have fully set.

    1. Pop out and enjoy: Once the gummies have set, carefully pop them out of the molds. Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator to keep them fresh.


If the gelatin clumps, heat the mixture gently on the stove top and whisk until all lumps dissolve.
