Cranberry Cider

A wonderfully delightful hot drink. Perfect this time of year.

1 lb. cranberries
3 1/2 quarts (14 cups) water
4 cinnamon sticks
12-15 whole cloves
2 cups sugar
2 lemons (just the juice)
2 oranges (just the juice)
Bring cranberries, water, cinnamon sticks and cloves to a boil. Simmer for 12 minutes. Add sugar and juice of lemons and oranges. Stir well. Strain through wire strainer (it's easier to dip a measuring cup into the pot and pour instead of trying to dump the whole pot) so that all the remnants are removed, you just want the liquid, into another container. Serve hot.
