Directions

1. To make the sugar syrup, combine 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Use a whisk to help break up the crystals. Do not boil, set aside once sugar is completely dissolved.

2. Meanwhile, rinse cranberries and place them into a bowl. Pour the warm sugar syrup to the bowl. Cover cranberries with a plate to keep them submerged. Once completely cooled, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge overnight.

3. The next day, drain cranberries in a colander (you can keep the syrup to make cocktails). Transfer the berries to a large shallow bowl lined with paper towels to absorb most of the remaining liquid. The cranberries should be slightly sticky but not wet.

4. In a small bowl, add about 2 tablespoons sugar. Add 3-4 berries and jiggle them around in the bowl to coat with sugar.

5. Transfer the berries to a wire rack and allow to dry for 2 hours minimum. Cranberries are ready when the sugar is firm, forming a  delicate crust. Enjoy!
