Sugared Cranberries
  • 12-ounce bag fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • additional sugar for rolling
  1. Wash cranberries and toss any damaged ones. Place in a bowl. Combine 1 cup of sugar and water in a pot and heat until simmering. Stir until sugar is dissolved and let cool until warm. Pour over cranberries and let sit. The longer they sit the less tart they will be. They can sit up to overnight.
  2. Use a slotted spoon to remove berries from syrup. Set berries on a cooling rack that is placed over foil to collect drips. Spread berries out so they are not touching each other. Let dry for 1 hour.
  3. Roll berries a handful at a time in sugar. Place sugared berries on a baking sheet, or foil, etc. and let dry for an hour or two.
  4. Store in a shallow container container at room temperature. The more they move and touch, the more sugar will fall off. ENJOY!!
