These taste as good as they look, and they're healthy, too! I like them for snacking but I've also served them as an appetizer, a side, on ice cream and on picks in cranberry cocktails. You can buy superfine sugar, but sugar pulsed in a food processor is the same thing.

How to Make Sugared Cranberries

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place 2 cups sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Heat to a simmer, stirring, occasionally. Continue heating until sugar has dissolved and syrup is clear.
  • 2Let syrup cool until it is warm and stir in the cranberries, stirring to coat. Do not add the cranberries while the syrup is hot or they will pop.
  • 3Pour cranberries into a bowl, cover and refrigerate overnight or for 12 hours.
  • 4Using a colander, drain the berries reserving the syrup for your next batch or another use if desired.
  • 5Gently stir the berries and the fine sugar together in a bowl. It is very important that the sugar be pulsed first in a food processor so that it clings to the berries. Combine until berries are coated.
  • 6Line a rimmed baking sheet with wax paper and spread the berries out in a single layer. Let sit at room temperature for one hour. The sugar coating will dry and the fine sugar will cling to the berries.
  • 7After one hour, remove cranberries with a slotted spoon. Reserve sugar for your next batch (you might want to repulse it after it dries). Place in a sealed container. Will keep in the refrigerator for two weeks.
