- 1/3 cup unsweetened elderberry "juice" (recipe below)
- 2 tbs orange juice
- 3 tbs raw honey
- 2 tbs gelatin
- a little vitamin C powder (optional for added immune boosting power)
1/2 cup elderberries (dried, or whole cup fresh)
3 cups of water
bring water to a boil, add elderberries, reduce to a simmer for 45 mins. once cooled, add 1 cup honey to make elderberry syrup (great for sore throats/coughs immune boosting etc) or leave out the honey and make gummies! you can freeze the gummies (or the juice, though i've never tried that!) the honey will act as a preservative for a while but it is best to freeze if you know you won't be using the gummies or syrup within a few weeks.
