Prep Time2 hrs 30 mins
Cook Time5 mins
Total Time2 hrs 35 mins
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 cups sugar divided
- 12 oz cranberries fresh
In a medium saucepan, combine the water and 1/2 cup of the sugar and bring to a boil over medium heat until sugar is fully dissolved, about 3 minutes.
Stir in the cranberries and make sure each cranberry is well coated in the simple syrup. Using a slotted spoon, transfer cranberries to a wire rack and let them dry for at least an hour.
After an hour the cranberries should be dry but sticky. Working with a few cranberries at once, roll them in the remaining sugar until they are fully coated. Let them sit until and dry for another hour.
- This recipe has only been tested with fresh cranberries, so I would not use frozen cranberries.
- Store these in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
