Elderberry Gummies by Rosalee de la Foret April 27, 2014

1/3 Cup of dried Elderberries

1/3 Cup of dried Rose Hips

1/4 Cup of Cinnamon Chips

2 Tablespoons of Licorice Root

1 Teaspoon of Freshly ground Black Pepper

3 Cups of Organic Apple Juice or Cider

3 Tablespoons of Gelatin

Step 1: Place all ingredients except for gelatin in a medium saucepan and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Strain with chesecloth or jelly bag. Squeeze well to extract the juice.

Step 2: Measure out 2 cups of the above juice. If there is less than 2 cups, add more apple juice or cider to make the full 2 cups.

Take ourt 1/2 cup of the juice into a glass pyrex bowl and place in the refridgerator.

Once it is cold, sprinkle the gelatin over the juice and let sit for 60 seconds.

Bring the rest of the juice to a simmer and pour over the cooled juice and gelatin while briskly stirring with a whisk. Continue to Whisk for 2 minutes or until gelatin is completely dissolved.

If desired, add sugar or honey but if it is sweet enough, you do not have to add them.

Pour mixture into silicone molds or glass pan and place into the refridgerator. Once they are hardened, they are will remain hard. In a glass pan, cut into cubes.

Store in a closed container inside the refridgerator. They will last for several weeks depending on honey and sugar content.
