How to Make Candied Cranberries


  1. Wash and dry berries and prick each with a needle. Boil sugar and water until syrup spins a thread (234df). Add berries and continue cooking until syrup forms a hard ball in cold water (250df).
    Lift berries from syrup, remove to wax paper and let stand until well dried. Roll in granulated sugar. Use like candid cherries.
  2. Note from book:
    The number and variety of things that were candied and used as sweet-meats is rather astonishing. Many types of flowers, such as violets, marigolds, cowslips and primroses were candied and scattered on salads, desserts and iced cakes.
