    Lawsome's Note:

    I wasn't sure how bitter, raw cranberries could turn into this tart-sweet holiday treat. They would be great year-round; however, you must start with fresh cranberries. The following is the original recipe. I had a 7.5 oz pkg of organic cranberries, so I reduced everything by a third. I also only had the ground versions of the cinnamon and cloves. It stilled turned out great, but I would use the whole versions next time.

      Yummy! To coat them I used about half cane sugar and half powdered sugar. I put them in the sugar in small batches and tossed them with forks and used a strainer spatula to shake off the extra sugar. They looked amazing and not clumpy! Plus, I kept my hands clean. I also soaked them for about 12 hours, just out of personal timing.

      How neat! These were wonderful! The syrup creates a nice crunch once it dries, and it pops in your mouth. I discovered that it was easier for me to drop the cranberries into the superfine sugar (I used powdered), toss to coat, then put them in a small strainer and shake all the excess sugar out. Then I could just dump them onto the baking sheet & they would still be pretty & round & not "clumpy". By the way, that picture by GaylaJ is GORGEOUS. Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe.

      These were a lovely and elegant addition to a new years eve party. I was looking for something that people would really notice - something out of the ordinary. These fit the bill. They are festive and yummy, although I thought that the texture was a little soft and they were a little messy to eat. They do not keep very well, so I was very glad that I made them the day of the party (a little challenging with a 10 hr prep time). Still, I would make them again. They are so unusual and look beautiful. These would make a fantastic garnish if you were really trying to impress. Thank you for posting the recipe.
