Recipe ingredients and directions:
1 lb (1/2 kg) cranberries
5 cups (1 1/4) liters water
2 or 3 orange slices (optional)
1/2 cup (125 ml) sugar
Wash the cranberries and put them into a nonreactive saucepan with the water,
a pinch of salt and if you wish, the orange slices. Cook over medium heat
until all the berries burst -- about 10 minutes.
Pour the fruit and liquid into a cheesecloth-lined sieve. Strain the juice
to the saucepan, add the sugar and boil for two or three minutes. Taste and
add more sugar if it is needed. Cool and chill the juice before serving.
1 lb (1/2 kg) cranberries, coarsely chopped
3 cups (3/4 liter) sugar
2 cups (1/2 liter) light rum
Place the chopped cranberries in a 2-quart (2 liter) jar that has a
tight-fitting lid. Add the sugar and rum. Adjust the lid securely and
place the jar in a cool, dark place. Invert the jar and shake it every
day for six weeks. Strain the cordial into bottles and seal with corks.
