Recipe by Tearanii
READY IN: 9hrs
YIELD: 1/3 cup




  • Combine granulated sugar and water in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring mixture until sugar dissolves.
  • Bring to a simmer; remove from heat.
  • (Do not boil or the cranberries may pop when added.) Stir in cranberries; pour mixture into a bowl.
  • Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
  • Drain cranberries in a colander over a bowl, reserving steeping liquid, if desired.
  • Place superfine sugar in a shallow dish.
  • Add the cranberries, rolling to coat with sugar.
  • Spread sugared cranberries in a single layer on a baking sheet; let stand at room temperature 1 hour or until dry.
  • Note: The steeping liquid clings to the berries and helps the sugar adhere.
  • Store in an airtight container in a cool place for up to a week.
