Homemade Cranberry Juice

Homemade Cranberry Juice Recipe

Yield 1.5 quarts



  1. Place whole cranberries and 1 cup of water in a medium saucepan.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil and reduce the heat to medium low. Simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and blend the berries using an immersion blender. (Or, let the mixture cool slightly and transfer it to your blender.) Blend until smooth.
  4. If desired, strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve to remove any remaining berry bits.
  5. Let the mixture cool slightly (to under 95°F) before mixing in the honey.
  6. Add the remaining 4 cups of water.
  7. Taste your juice and add more sweetener or water, as desired.
  8. Store the juice in the refrigerator and use within 2 weeks.


This juice can also be frozen as a finished juice, or as a concentrate before adding the water.
