CranBerry Orange Water Kefir

Tart cranberries and sweet orange blend for an AWESOME fizzy Thanksgiving/holiday drink, fun for the kiddos too. Never made water kefir? Follow my instructions here (scroll to the water kefir recipe) and follow up with the second ferment with this recipe.
1 bag whole cranberries
1 clementine, blood orange or naval halved
1 cup cane sugar

Place all ingredients in saucepan and cover with water by 1 inch. Bring to a low boil to dissolve sugar. Mash the cranberries and orange together with a potato masher. Low boil for 3 minutes, stirring to prevent scorching. Strain off liquid and discard the pulp, (or feed to your awesome chickens, pigs, ducks, turkeys etc). Wait for liquid to cool and add 1/8-1/4 cup cranberry liquid to each pint of water kefir. Follow with second ferment of 2 -4 days on counter at 68-74 degrees. Refrigerate once it is fizzy.
