Do you want a simple, yet beautiful little holiday treat for your seasonal gatherings? I like to make things that are quick & easy & yet looks so incredibly special. It doesn’t take all day in the kitchen to create something that is a show stopper at your next party. This recipe gets people ohhing & ahhing over just how pretty & tasty they are.
Soaking them in the syrup overnight makes them sweet & simply wonderful.
I love that these make such a pretty garnish on top of a dessert or scattered on the buffet table.
Cranberry Simple Syrup
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup water
- 2 cups cranberries
Rinse cranberries & set aside.
In medium saucepan heat 1 cup water & 1 cup sugar until sugar is dissolved & liquid is warm. Do not boil.
Remove from heat & allow to come to room temperature. (cranberries will pop if the syrup is too hot)
Once syrup is cool- pour over cranberries & place something on top of the cranberries to hold them down in the syrup since they will naturally float.
Cover & refrigerate 3 days.
Once your cranberries have soaked for allotted time - strain out cranberries in colander & reserve for another recipe.
Transfer syrup to an airtight container & store at room temperature to use in any recipe that calls for simple syrup.
