Noticed lots of cranberry's for sale in the supermarket so might be worth buying some and having a go, perhaps freezing a load if prices are low.

1 lb fresh cranberries or 1 lb frozen cranberries
1 quart water
sugar I will be omitting this stage of course!
Directions:

1 Wash and drain fresh or frozen red-ripe cranberries.
2 Combine cranberries and water in a large pan.
3 Bring to a boil.
4 Reduce heat and cook until berries burst.
5 Strain juice through a fine strainer lined with cheese cloth.
6 Sugar can be added to juice to your taste.
7 Reheat juice until it is almost, but not boiling.
8 Pour into jars.
9 Allow to cool before refrigerating.

Cranberry are fairly cheap this time of year. I usually get several bags and freeze them. They are a diamond and the #1 geno-harmonic foods on my swami.   Once they're gone we can only get canned (sugared) sauces or dried. I can get the juice, one without sugar etc. at $10.50 US (one qt.) I drink about 3oz each morning and have notice WH puts some in his frozen yogurt at night now.  

If I had the freezer space I'd get much more and make my own juice. Enjoy your juice.  Good for us Gather/explorer types

The recipe works okay but is a bit wasteful.

I worked the pulp round the sieve with a spoon and basically got double the amount of juice when I added more water and brought to the boil again and then re sieved.

tastes all right without sweetener too

questions.

what can I do with the remaining pulp.

are the little black seeds any use? they taste all right.

I do hate to waste stuff lol

We love eating cranberry sauce all year round, so I have no need to look for cranberry recipes. I want to stock up so I can make cranberry sauce all year round!

I wouldn't say that cranberries are "cheap" this time of year, but this IS the only time of year they're even available. I wanted to stock up on cranberries from Costco, but I had to throw out 2 huge bags (one partially used) when we lost power for 9 days. Costco no longer has any cranberries, but the local supermarkets do. So far I've bought 8 bags (enough to make 8 batches of cranberry sauce, so enough for 8 weeks) and I'm hoping to buy more. I have one in the fridge to make this Friday night and 7 in the basement freezer.

I like the way my Grandmere used to make a simple sauce.

12 ounces fresh cranberries
one lemon, including peel, cut in quarters  [used to be with an orange ]
1/2 cup raw sugar (or honey/ compliant sweetener)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 Tablespoons minced fresh mint

Combine first four ingredients in food processor or blender...coarsely ground
Add mint and pulse gently just to combine
cover and refrigerate...let flavors meld

I just boil 12 oz cranberries with 1.5 cups of pineapple juice. Sometimes I add some agave after cooking, sometimes not. This works well with juice concentrate as well, but I can't find pineapple juice concentrate without added vitamin C (corn.)
