Elderberry Gummies

So everyone in our family town has been passing around colds for about 6 weeks now.  Knock on wood, I attribute my daughters only brief illnesses to these gummies.  She loves them.  I don’t mind giving them to her either.  They have a great texture and are mildly sweet, but nothing too crazy.  I tried store bought ones once and it tasted like I bit into a sugar cube, yuck!  For now I am using this recipe to make the elderberry syrup but I have made similar ones with store bought syrup as well.  Just check the ingredients on the store bought syrup to decide what else you need to add.

Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan heat up the juice on medium. You want a slight simmer but not boiling.
  2. While the juice heats up, add the gelatin to the cold elderberry syrup by mixing slowly as you sprinkle it on.
  3. Wait for the gelatin to bloom, then slowly mix it in with the simmering juice and turn the heat way down. You can take it off completely at this point but I leave it on the hot burner just in case I move too slowly to fill up the trays, I don't want it to harden.
  4. Fill silicone molds (any ceramic pan or ramekin also works great!)
  5. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours depending on the thickness of your pour.
  6. Don't over indulge!

Here is a Picture montage for your fancy: (see the bloomed gelatin? It’s a little clumpy because I wasted too long to put it in, but it turned out just fine) I use droppers that came with my silicone molds to limit my mess.

I had a little leftover, so I put it in a ramekin, and it still came out cleanly.

Enjoy!
