These Sugared Cranberries are so easy to make right at home and they're a great addition to your Christmas and Thanksgiving desserts or you can just pop them like candy!
Servings: 2 Cups
Combine water and ½ cup of sugar in a small saucepan and heat on medium heat until sugar dissolves, about 2 to 3 minutes. DO NOT let the water boil, just bring it to a light simmer.
Once the sugar has dissolved, turn heat low and add the cranberries to the water/sugar mix making sure they are well coated. Let them sit in water for 2 to 3 minutes. You can do this in portions if it's easier.
Transfer cranberries to a wire rack to dry using a slotted spoon, try to keep them separated as much as possible so they don't all stick together.
After about 30 minutes, toss the cranberries in the remaining sugar.
Use the cranberries to dress up your holiday desserts or just eat them straight.
- Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. They may get a little less “sparkling” so go ahead and freshen them up with more sugar before using.
