How to Make Cranberry Juice
- In a large kettle, bring the water and cranberries to a boil on high heat. Once the water begins to boil, lower the heat, cover the kettle, and let it simmer for 20 minutes or until you see the berries begin to pop.
- Once all the berries have popped, you will need to strain this mixture through a fine strainer. You will need to use the back of a spoon to press the mixture so the seeds can be discarded. When you have the cranberry juice, pour it into a small pot.
- At this point, you can add sugar, fresh lemon juice, and fresh orange juice. Bring it to a boil again; cook it until the sugar gets dissolved.
- After the sugar has incorporated well, take it off the heat and let it cool. Transfer it into a jug, cover it, and place it in the refrigerator so it can cool.
- This juice tastes the best when it is cold. Serve in an insulated tumblers also store in a thermos bottle.
