Servings 8


  • 1 cup granulated sugar + more for coating later
  • 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 the syrup for another recipe.
  • Roll sticky cranberries in granulated sugar and allow to dry at room temperature.
  • Transfer syrup to an airtight container & store at room temperature.
