Hello all,

I have several zip-top bags of frozen wild cranberries that are left over from my wife making jam and jelly. We both enjoy making and drinking cider, so we decided to use what we have left for our next batch of cider. I was planning on adding the juice from one gallon baggy of berries to the secondary. The batch will be 5.5 gallons total. My question is, how can I get the juice from the cranberries? It is okay to have the haze and thickness from cooking the berries when making jelly, but I would like my cider to be clear if possible. Is there a way to get the juice from the berries and not have the cloudiness or thickness?
