Get your silicone molds ready before starting anything. I like to place mine on a cookie sheet so they can easily be put in the refrigerator.
Put 3/4 cup of the black cherry juice into a small sauce pan and heat just until it comes to a boil.
While the juice is heating, combine the elderberry syrup and remaining 1/4 cup of black cherry juice with the gelatin in a mixing bowl. It’s important to hydrate the gelatin this way first before adding the hot liquid so that it can properly bloom. But don’t wait too long to add the hot juice or it will start to set.
Quickly add the heated juice to the mixture and whisk until smooth.
Add the raw honey here if you’re using it.
Immediately pour the liquid into the silicone molds before it has time to set.
I like to let mine set on the counter for 10 minutes, and then move to the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes.
Pop the gummies out of the silicone mold and store in a glass bowl or jar in the fridge.
