  1. To make the elderberry syrup, add the dried elderberry, cinnamon and ginger to a pot and cover it with the water. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer for 45-60 minutes, or until the liquid is reduced by about half.
  2. Remove the cinnamon and ginger and allow to cool before mashing the berries with a potato masher or spoon to pull out any extra juices.
  3. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a glass or jar. Once totally cool add the honey to taste and stir well. Save the syrup in the fridge for 2 months.
  4. To make the gummies, add 1 cup of the syrup to a pot. Sprinkle 2 tbsp of gelatin over the syrup and allow to harden.
  5. Transfer the pot to the stove and heat over low heat for 3-4 minutes or until fully liquid.
  6. Use a dropper to carefully transfer the liquid into a mold. Alternatively, you can use a large glass container. Transfer to the fridge for 4 hours or until fully set.
  7. Carefully remove from the mold and store in glass in the fridge for 1-2 months.


To make this recipe vegan, you would swap out gelatin for agar. Agar is a lot stronger than gelatin, so you need to divide the amount of gelatin by three, and then you’ll have the amount of agar needed! This comes out to 2 tsp of agar.
