Oregon Grape Juice

Oregon Grape Juice

The juice is perfect for kids and adult alike. The flavor rich beverage will be perfect as a non-alcoholic alternative to red wine.

  • 2.5 quarts of frozen berries (if fresh, triple cook time)

  • 3.5 cups of water

  • Put berries and water into a pot and boil for at least 10 minutes.

  • Turn off the heat and use a potato masher to turn the berries into pulp.

  • Pour the mixture over a sieve with a bowl underneath for catching the juice.

  • Let sit for 30 minutes to let the juice drain into the bowl.

  • Try to press out the juice from the pulp through the sieve

  • Measure how much juice concentrate you got. Add back to pot. For every quart of juice add 2.5 cups of sugar.

  • Let it boil up then simmer for 10 minutes. Pour the concentrated juice into containers and store in fridge.
