The Homesteader’s Herbal Companion (Lyons Press, 2018) by Amy K. Fewell helps beginners and experts alike make the most of their homegrown herbs. This guide takes readers through the basics of using herbs in their home. Fewell speaks from experience, after growing her own herbs for years. The following excerpt is her method for making herbal gummies.

These gummies are really fun for the little ones to help you make. Make elderberry gummies for cold and flu season, or make other gummies by switching out the herbs!

• 1/4 cup grape concentrate
• 1/2 cup hot water
• 1/3 cup gelatin
• 1 cup homemade elderberry syrup
• Gummy molds

Method:

1. In a large bowl, quickly whisk together grape juice concentrate, hot water, and gelatin.



2. Add in elderberry syrup and stir quickly.

3. Pour mixture into coconut-oiled gummy molds. Refrigerate for 1 hour, then pop out into a gallon bag and keep in the fridge for 1–2 weeks.
