Let's get started with this incredibly simple and easy 2-ingredient recipe:


2 cups sugar, divided
1 (12-ounce) bag fresh cranberries


1.  In a medium saucepan combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water. Stir continuously over medium heat until sugar is dissolved, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cranberries until the cranberries are coated evenly with sugar syrup. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a wire rack over parchment paper or cookie sheet to catch drippings; let dry for 1 hour.

2.  Place the remaining sugar in a large bowl. Working in batches, roll cranberries in remaining 1-1/2 cups sugar until well coated; let dry for at least 1 hour.

Store cranberries in a lidded container in the fridge.
So whether you'd like to make Sugared Cranberries to use as a garnish...

a snack or gift, this 2-ingredient recipe is incredibly simple, easy, and delicious!
