Making and Canning Homemade Cranberry Juice 

Making this homemade cranberry juice is a healthy and inexpensive way to have cranberry juice! And the  best part it is so delicious. The best time to buy cranberries is around Thanksgiving!

The first thing to do is to wash cranberries.

Place whole berries in each quart jar. Using a canning funnel helps the process. Each 12-ounce bag makes about 2 quarts of juice.

Add sugar to each jar.

Then add boiling water to each jar.  Fill to 1/2 inch headspace. Remove the air bubbles.

Wipe the rims of the jars and add the lids and screw bands.

Jars ready for the water bath canner

Process for 25 minutes at a full rolling boil. 

The juice won’t be ready to drink for another 4-6 weeks. Seems like a long time, when you see how good the juice looks. You can drink it sooner, it will just be less concentrated juice.

Enjoy the delicious, healthy cranberry juice!!
