Ultimate Immune-Supporting Gummies

admin August 26, 2015

A week ago, several friends and I got together for a “winter health DIY night.”  We all brought herbs and other ingredients and we made several different natural remedies for the upcoming winter.  We made elderberry syrup, cough syrup, and some other projects I haven’t published yet.

Some wanted to turn their elderberry syrup into gummies.  So they did!  But I didn’t use straight elderberry syrup to make mine.  No, I combined a few things to make the ultimate immune-supporting gummies!

One gummy per day may help you stay healthy this winter because of all the awesome ingredients.

Ultimate Immune-Supporting Gummies

Elderberry has some pretty awesome immune-Supporting properties and can help shorten the duration of colds and flu.

Cinnamon is anti-inflammatory, which is good all the way around!

Ginger is anti-inflammatory, and good for tummies and colds too.

Raw honey is anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and adds a touch of extra sweetness for the little ones.

Grape juice has been shown to help prevent tummy bugs — I don’t fully understand why, but a lot of people have reported that it worked (family members who didn’t drink it got the bug; family members who did drink it, didn’t).

Vitamin C and probiotic powders can make it just that much better, although I give these separately instead of mixing them in.

Gelatin makes them fun, but is also good for soothing the gut!

Directions:

Step 1: Combine elderberries, ginger, and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.  Boil for 1 – 2 minutes then turn it off.  Let it sit for 20 minutes.

Step 2: Strain the elderberries, squeezing them well, and reserve the liquid — you need 1/4 cup.

Step 3: Stir in the cinnamon and raw honey.   Add the gelatin and let it sit for a couple minutes.

Step 4: In a separate pot, heat the grape juice until steaming.  Pour it into the other mix.

Step 5: Stir until gelatin has dissolved.

Step 6: When the mix has cooled to warm (cool enough that you can touch it), add the vitamin powders, if using.

Step 7: Pour into molds or a square baking dish.  Place in the fridge.

Step 8: Cut into 1/2″ squares or pop out of the mold.  Store in the fridge for 2 – 3 weeks.  Take 1 – 2 daily; more (up to 1 per hour) at the first sign of illness.
