Sugared Cranberries

Sugared Cranberries(Adapted from CL)

2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups water
2 cups fresh cranberries
1/2 to 3/4 cup superfine sugar*

In a small saucepan, combine granulated sugar and water over low heat. Stir mixture until all of the sugar dissolves. Bring to a simmer; remove from heat. If the mixture boils, cool slightly, if too hot the cranberries may burst. Stir in cranberries and pour mixture into a bowl. Cover with saran wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Drain cranberries in a colander over a bow. Place superfine sugar in a shallow dish. Add the cranberries, rolling to coat with sugar. Spread sugared cranberries in a single layer on a baking sheet; let stand at room temperature 1 hour or until dry.

*If you don't want to buy this - you can whiz the sugar in a food processor for a minute or two to break down the granules


  1. wow, these look amazing! do they come out quite dry? i'm wondering if i could package it up as a holiday gift?

  2. They are quite dry although I don't know how long they would keep that texture as they didnt last a day!
