Cranberry Juice

This might be a little messy, but it is well worth the effort.

         1 lb fresh Cranberries
         5 cups Water
         ½ cup Sugar
         3 Orange slices
         Salt to taste (a pinch will normally do)

    First wash the cranberries, then place it along with the orange slices, the
    salt and the water. Place this over a medium fire for about 10 minutes or
    until the berries burst.

    You should use a non-reactive pan when cooking the cranberries as
    otherwise you could get some very nasty stuff in your cranberry juice.

    You can then either use the same pan or another one, but you will
    definitely need a sieve lined with cheesecloth.

    Pour the cooked cranberries into this sieve, then strain it into a suitable
    saucepan. Add the sugar at this point and bring the juice to a boil once
    more, this time for about 2-3 minutes.

    Add more sugar if needed. Serve chilled.

Preparation Time: 15-20 minutes + chilling time
Serves: makes 3-5 servings
