This festive drink can be made in the Instant Pot and enjoyed hot or iced.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 13 minutes
Servings 16 servings
- 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.
