Sugared Cranberries

Course: Dessert
Author: Southern Made Simple


  • 3/4 cup white granulated sugar + additional for dusting
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 8 oz bag fresh cranberries


  • In a medium sauce pan, heat water and sugar and stir until all sugar has dissolved
  • Add in cranberries and stir for just a few seconds until completely coated
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer cranberries onto a wire rack on top of a baking sheet and allow to dry for an hour or so
  • Once cranberries are dried, pour a small amount of sugar into a bowl and toss around to coat
  • Place cranberries back onto drying rack and allow to dry for one more hour
  • Store cranberries in a loosely sealed container so the sugar will stay intact and not dissolve
  • Enjoy!
