I love drinking cranberry juice but hate paying full price for store-bought juice that has extra sugar. I have made homemade cranberry juice in the past by extracting the juice and then canning it but I wanted to try to can it a little easier way. You simply add the cranberries, sugar, and water and can them in a water bath canner. The hardest part is waiting a couple of weeks to let the cranberries release their juice.

Rinse the cranberries and add approximately 1 1/2 cups to each jar.
Add approximately 1/3 cup sugar to each jar.
Pour boiling water over the cranberries and sugar.
Process in the water bath canner for 25 minutes. Remove and store for 4-6 weeks to get the best tasting cranberry juice.
I can’t wait to taste this batch of cranberry juice in a few weeks!
