Cranberry Juice

Ingredients

  • 4 quarts (4 pounds) cranberries
  • Water
  • 3 to 3 1/2 cups granulated sugar

Instructions

  1. Bring cranberries and 4 quarts water to a simmer in a large pot. DO NOT BOIL. Simmer 5 minutes, or until most berries burst.
  2. Pour berries and juice into damp jelly bag or a colander lined with four layers of clean cheesecloth. Let juice drip into a large bowl. DO NOT squeeze the bag.
  3. When you have extracted as much juice as possible from the pulp, return pulp to pot with 2 quarts water. Simmer 2 minutes. Pour this pulp and juice through jelly bag again to extract remaining juice.
  4. Place the 2 batches of juice in a large pot. Add sugar to suit your taste and 1 more quart water. Heat to dissolve sugar completely, but do not boil.
  5. Quickly pour into clean, hot jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace; seal.
  6. Process in boiling water bath for 15 minutes.

Yield: 6 to 7 quarts
