In Sweden last summer I learned to make “saft,” a fruit concentrate that you add to water to make a yummy drink. I made rhubarb saft and currant saft. Both were delicious. But now that it’s cranberry season here at home, I decided I should try my hand at making some cranberry saft!
It was mighty tasty!
A few people have asked for the recipe, so here it is.
8 cups cranberries
4 cups sugar
4 cups water
Combine sugar and water in a saucepan and heat until sugar dissolves. Add berries and bring to a boil. Boil 15 minutes. Pour into a jelly bag and let drain several hours. Voila! Saft!
Add your syrup to still or sparkling water for a refreshing drink. I find a 1 to 4 ratio of syrup and water suits my taste, but experiment and see what you like.
This will keep several weeks in your refrigerator.
