I had 2 bags of fresh cranberries and kept debating what to do with them. It finally occurred to me to make cranberry juice. So here goes the recipe. 

I got the inspiration from a recipe I found on Pinterest by ourpaleolife.com. Oh dear Pinterest!

Homemade Cranberry Juice

  • Servings: about 1 quart
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients:

2 bags of fresh cranberries (12 ounce packages)
4 cups of water (or more if it seems a bit too pure for your taste)
1 cup of honey (or more to taste)

Preparation:

  1. Add cranberries and water to a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
  2. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. All the berries should have popped open and be a little mushy at by this point.
  3. Place a fine mesh strainer over a bowl and pour the berries into it. Keep the berries for the next recipe. 🙂
  4. Pour the honey into the bowl with the hot juice. Stir until the honey is dissolved completely.
  5. Allow the juice to cool about an hour so it’s not too hot to handle. Pour the reserved juice into a ½ gallon container (preferably glass) and store in the refrigerator.

Enjoy, Bon Appétit, Buen Provecho!                                                           EdibleReflections.com

Mine came out a bit thick since I didn’t use a very fine mesh strainer. That being said, I love the taste and texture. Night and day difference from what you buy in the store.

Tomorrow I will post the Cranberry Cream Cheese recipe where I used the berries from this juice.

So come back! 🙂

Enjoy, Bon Appétit, Buen Provecho!
