Sugared Cranberries & Cranberry Syrup Recipe

One Recipe, Two Sweet and Tangy Holiday Treats

 

If there is a fruit that screams Thanksgiving and Christmas, its cranberries. The beautiful red balls of tartness can be used for so many things from foodstuffs to decorating. So, when I ran across this idea for Sugared Cranberries on Pinterest last year, I had to give it a try.

Sugared Cranberries are always a huge hit at our Thanksgiving and Christmas get-togethers. Of course, the cranberries are set out for snacking, but everyone’s favorite part is the goodie bags. The small cellophane bags filled with Sugared Cranberries and tied with ribbons for my guests to take home. They also received a small Mason jar of Pumpkin Spice Syrup. Yum, yum, yum!

Sugared Cranberries are amazing and they have become a must-have for our Christmas and Thanksgiving celebrations. Your family will love them. Give them a try.

 Sugared Cranberries Recipe

All you need for this recipe is Fresh Cranberries, Granulated Sugar, Water, and Ultra-Fine Baker’s Sugar. Do Not skimp-out on this ingredient. Regular sugar will clump and not work well. It is a very simple recipe and takes very little time–minus the steeping time.

 

Add Granulated Sugar to Water in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir occasionally until sugar dissolves and makes a syrup. DO NOT BOIL. Stir in Fresh Cranberries. Transfer berries and syrup to a container, cover, and refrigerate. Let cranberries steep for 8-hours to overnight.

 

After steeping, drain cranberries well. Do Not pat dry. Clinging syrup helps the Ultra-Fine Baker’s Sugar adhere to cranberries. Reserve Cranberry Syrup for later use. Coat cranberries with ultra-fine sugar a few at a time. Place Sugared Cranberries single layer in shallow pans. Shake occasionally to roll cranberries around for even drying. Leave at room temperature for 1-hour or until dry.

CAUTION: Do Not layer or pile cranberries too heavily. They are very delicate and will pop.

These refreshing sweet-tart treats have a nice little pop in your mouth. They can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
