Course: Dessert, Snack
2cupsgranulated sugar, divided
Place cranberries in a large bowl; set aside.
1 cup fresh cranberries
In a medium saucepan, bring 1 cup of sugar and the water to a boil and whisk until the sugar has dissolved. Remove pan from the heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
2 cups granulated sugar, divided, 1 cup water
Pour sugar syrup over the cranberries and stir. Let the cranberries sit at room temperature or in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours or overnight.
You’ll notice the sugar syrup is pretty darn thick which is just the way you want them. Drain the cranberries from the syrup and pour 1 cup of sugar on top. Toss the cranberries, coating them all the way around.
Pour the sugared cranberries on a parchment paper and let them dry for at least 2 hours at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
You’ll have extra, but use your imagination for what else you can garnish or just have them as a sweet snack. Cover tightly and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
