It’s easy to find fresh cranberries at almost any grocery store this time of year!

Here is the recipe:

Yields1 Serving

 1 Bag Fresh Craberries
 2 cups White Sugar (divided)
 ½ cup water

1

Heat 1/2 c. water and 1/2 c. sugar in a pot on medium heat.

2

Once sugar is dissolved add the fresh cranberries

3

Stir until cranberries are coated, about 2 minutes.

4

Use a slotted spoon and remove cranberries from the pan onto a cooling rack, I placed parchment paper below to catch the drippings.

5

Allow cranberries to cool and dry, about 1 hour.

6

After an hour cranberries will be very sticky. Add cranberries to a bowl of sugar in small batches (use the remaining sugar) and spoon sugar over cranberries.

If not using right away, store sugared cranberries in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
