I have an elderly neighbor and she told me that she buy the cranberrys in the bag and boil them and drink the juice.
She adds a little sugar and that is it.
She drinks that in the wintertime.
Anybody else do that?
Is that something to try??

RE: Cranberrys

I've never done that, but I've heard that cranberries are good for you. Maybe it's the vitamin C? Does she have a reason for drinking it?

RE: Cranberrys

Don't know.
She say it's healthy and good for your bladder and kidneys.
I drink the juice, like ocean spray, but not like this.
Mayby i should try it.

RE: Cranberrys

Well, that's pretty much how you make cranberry sauce so it sounds like she's just drinking the "sauce" minus the berries (and maybe not adding that much sugar).

RE: Cranberrys

Try it! It is good for you. Or you can buy it in the juice section, but if you make your own you might be able to cut the sugar.

RE: Cranberrys

Or----- you could just buy the cranberry tablets at your grocery store which prevent bladder infections, and take one a day, drinking lots of water....

RE: Cranberrys

The commercial brands have a lot of sugar and other stuff in them, preservatives and such. I'd think her way would be healthier. Warning, though, without all that sugar, cranberry juice is very tart.
