Hot Cranberry Punch
This punch recipe, which is in my cookbook, is a comforting drink to serve on a cold day.
1 bottle (2 qt.) cranberry juice
6 (3 inch) cinnamon sticks
12 whole cloves
Pour about half of the juice in a pan with the cinnamon sticks and cloves.
Simmer 45 minutes. Strain. Discard cinnamon and cloves.
Add the following:
1 c. sugar
4 c. orange juice
1 c. lemon juice
remainder of the bottle of cranberry juice
Warm to dissolve sugar.
Note: This can be made up to 2 weeks ahead, kept refrigerated and heated as needed.
Did you know that cranberry plants can live 150 years?
