  • 4 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 gallon filtered water divided
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 to 1 cup raw honey


  • Add cranberries, cinnamon and 1/2 gallon of filtered water to pressure cooker inner pot.
  • Close lid and set to sealing position.
  • Press "Manual" and reduce time to 8 minutes.
  • After cooking time has concluded, turn off Instant Pot by pressing "Cancel" and allow to naturally release pressure.
  • When safe to do so (check for safety valve to be down), carefully open lid and remove inner pot. Set it on a cooling rack or another safe surface to cool. 
  • Once cooled enough to handle, strain to remove cranberry pulp and cinnamon stick.
  • Add remaining water and continue to cool juice before adding lemon and honey.
  • When juice has cooled considerably, add freshly squeezed lemon juice and raw honey. Stir well. 
  • Enjoy slightly warm as a cider or iced as juice. Can be stored in refrigerator for up to 2 months. 


Note: To keep the maximum nutrient and enzyme profile of raw honey, be sure the juice has cooled to 99F degrees before adding it.
