- 1 gallon mayhaws, washed, leaves and spoiled fruit removed
- 12 cups water
- In a large stockpot, cover the mayhaws with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and strain berries and juice through a chinois or a colander. Extract the remaining juice from the berries with a pestle if using a chinois or with the back of a spoon if using a colander. Strain the juice two times through two or three layers of cheesecloth or a jelly bag.
