I got thinking this morning after posting the recipe for Sunshine Pancakes... orange and cranberries are natural companions... why not make a Cranberry flavored maple syrup? The natural sugars in the syrup will tame the tartness of the berries.
In a small saucepan, pour in the maple syrup and add the dried cranberries. Heat the syrup over medium heat until it starts to bubble, then turn the heat down and simmer until it starts to thicken, about another 2-3 minutes. Serve warm over Sunshine Pancakes.
This will keep in a sealed container for up to two weeks. Use on vanilla ice cream, yogurt, drizzled over Coffeehouse Bliss Bars....
