  1. In a small bowl, pour the boiling water over the elderberries, and cover. Let sit 10 minutes to steep.

  2. Strain the elderberries, and press out all the juice.

  3. In a small pot, combine the elderberry juice, honey, and coconut oil and heat over medium to high heat.

  4. Bring the mixture to a bubbling boil (it will foam), remove from heat, and whisk until the bubbles go down. Place back on the heat.

  5. Repeat this for 6 minutes or until the mixture sits at 300 degrees. The mixture should darken slightly and become a bit more sticky as the honey thickens up.

  6. Pour the mixture into individual candy molds, keep them fairly small. Please in the freezer to set (and store there).
