Sugared Cranberries

Sugared cranberries are such a yummy dessert that look almost like a decoration themselves. These berries are great for parties or even as a gifts if you keep them sealed in a cute mason jar. Here’s a recipe The RED Team found for how to get that perfect sugary coat on cranberries.



4 cups of sugar

2 cups of water

2 cups of fresh cranberries



In a medium saucepan, bring two cups of water to a boil. Stir in two cups of sugar until the sugar dissolves and becomes a syrup. Let the simple syrup cool for a few minutes. Place the cranberries in a bowl and pour the syrup over them. Let the cranberries sit for 4-6 hours or overnight. Stir them occasionally.

Pour the remaining two cups of sugar into a bowl. Drain the cranberries from the simple syrup. Add the cranberries, in batches, to the sugar. Toss them with the sugar until the are coated all the way around. Place the sugared cranberries on a parchment lined tray and let them dry for about two hours.

And that’s it! How simple?

We hope you enjoy this sweet treat! Let us know if you use the recipe or have any creative ideas for using berries in your baking.
