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.
