Ingredients

  • First, the juice: shopping list
  • To a large pot, add 2 gallons mayhaw fruit and enough water to cover the fruit by no more than 1 inch. Boil mayhaw till tender. Strain off pulp and seeds in colander, catching the juice in another container. Now pour juice through small mesh strainer till fairly clear. Some folks add a drop or two of red food coloring just to give it a brighter color and make it look pretty. shopping list
