This tasty hot cranberry tea beverage recipe is unusual. It’s especially pretty served in clear mugs to show off the deep red color.

4 cups fresh cranberries
3-1/2 quarts water
16 whole cloves
4 3-inch cinnamon sticks
2 lemons, juiced
2 oranges, juiced
2 cups sugar

Combine cranberries, water, cloves and cinnamon sticks in a Dutch oven and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cover, continue to simmer for 15 minutes. Layer a large strainer with several layers of cheesecloth and place over another pot. Pour the cranberries into the strainer and gently press the berries with a wooden spoon to extract the deeper flavor. Discard the cheesecloth and berries. Add lemon juice, orange juice and sugar to the hot cranberry juice, stirring until the sugar is completely dissolved. Serve hot.

Yield: 3-1/2 quarts
