Elderberry is a shrub that grows in Europe, North America, and some parts of Asia. The berries have been used for centuries to treat colds and flu symptoms. But it’s not just the berries themselves – elderberries are also good sources of antioxidants that can help fight inflammation caused by free radicals in your body. So while there’s still more research to be done in this area, elderberry does seem to have some potential health benefits.

The best way to consume elderberry is by making a homemade elderberry syrup using your instant pot, crockpot, or stovetop. This syrup can be used in many ways and one of the easiest is to make elderberry gummies, which are delicious! You can use any mold but I like using silicone molds because they’re easy to pop out. It also helps create fun shapes that adults and kids will love to eat.

🐻 Is elderberry syrup or gummies better?

Both the syrup and gummies have their own benefits. The syrup is good for adults who want to boost their immune system, while the gummies are perfect for kids because they’re easy to eat and taste great.

🫐 Elderberry Gummies Ingredients

  • Elderberry Syrup – Homemade elderberry syrup is best because it’s fresh and you can control the ingredients. You could also use store-bought but make sure to check the label for added sugar.
  • Gelatin Powder – This gives the gummies their shape and texture. It helps them hold together when they are solidifying. I like using Great Lakes Unflavored Beef Gelatin because it’s grass-fed, pasture-raised, and non-GMO.

Recommended Tools:

  • Small Saucepan
  • Silicone Molds
  • Whisk

πŸ₯£ How To Make Homemade Elderberry Gummies

  1. Pour cooled elderberry syrup into a small saucepan.
  2. Sprinkle the gelatin over top and let it sit for one minute to bloom.
  3. Whisk it into the syrup, then turn the heat to low.
  4. As the mixture heats up, continue to whisk until the gelatin is fully dissolved without bringing it to a boil.
  5. Place the gummy molds onto a flat baking sheet, then pour the liquid into the molds.
  6. Add the filled gummy molds to the fridge to chill for two hours or until solid.
  7. Pop-out of the gummy molds and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ³ Cooking Tips & Variations

  • Make sure the syrup is completely cooled before adding the gelatin. If you add the gelatin to hot syrup, it will not bloom and dissolve properly.
  • Use a silicone mold for easy removal when hardened. The liquid doesn’t stick like with other molds so they come out easily without ruining their shape or texture. If you don’t have silicone molds, you can use an ice cube tray that is greased with coconut oil.
  • Be sure not to overheat the mixture as this can break down the gelatin and cause uneven gummies.
  • If you’re using a mold with different shapes, it’s best to divide the mixture evenly among each shape so they all harden properly.
  • You can use this method to make electrolyte gummies or tart cherry gummies to support sleep.
