Sugared Cranberries


  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1 cup water


  1. Bring one cup of sugar and water to a boil, whisk until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let it sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Pour over cranberries and let sit in the fridge for 6 hours – overnight is better.
  3. Drain cranberries. Pour one cup of sugar over cranberries and toss. Shake off excess sugar and let dry out in the fridge or at room temperature for at least 2 hours.

These are the perfect combination of tart and sweet and they just pop when you bite into them. They are great as a topping or to eat by themselves.
