This fall when my dad got a bladder infection my mom asked me to pick up some cranberry juice for him. I was shocked at how hard it was to find just plain cranberry juice. Most of it was mixed with apple juice, grape juice, high fructose corn syrup, and other natural flavorings. They did not name what they used for flavorings. What was my dilemma? My dad was recently diagnosed with a bad allergy to apples. I know it is odd, but having kids with food allergies nothing surprises me anymore. So I decided to make my own cranberry juice and can it for my family.
It was good timing being around Thanksgiving almost all the stores had bags of cranberries on sale for under a dollar. So I bought a bunch of them up and threw them in my freezer for a rainy day or when I had time to actually make the juice and can it!!
Today was that rainy day. Well actually a snowy day, but a day that I had nothing else to do and had time to make my juice.
