Homemade Cranberry Juice

I bought some unsweetened cranberry juice recently to use in my Cranberry Relish for Thanksgiving. Just out of curiosity, I took a little sip. Holy sour! My face puckered up and stayed like that for a couple minutes. I was expecting tart, but that was severe. I really love cranberry juice, but don’t love that it needs to be sweetened (usually with sugar) to be drinkable. Not that I advocate drinking a ton of juice, but it’s nice for a treat of the occasional bladder infection. I remember my mom always giving us cranberry juice as kids for that.

So I’ve got a ton of bags of cranberries in the freezer (okay, not a ton, but a lot) and finally realized that I could make my own juice. The amount of honey that you add can be adjusted, but for 8 cups of juice, anywhere between 3/4 – 1 cup of honey would be just right. After drinking this cranberry juice, I realized that as much as I liked the store-bought stuff, this stuff is a million times better. It actually tastes like cranberries, not like some sugar-loaded drink. There is still enough tartness with a perfect balance of sweet that is just perfect. The only problem is that it’s so good, I have to remember to only drink a little, and not let it replace my water.

And since Chrismas is coming, and you might be looking for a delicious festive drink that all members of the family can enjoy (children included), I’ve got a tasty drink recipe coming tomorrow.
