    Sugared Cranberries Recipe

    I love cranberries, which are a perfect fruit during the holidays. This year for Christmas, I whipped up a batch of delicious sugared (candied) cranberries with a subtle orange flavor.

    Ingredients

    • 12 ounces of fresh cranberries
    • 1 tablespoon of fresh chopped orange peel (no pith)
    • 1 cup of water
    • 2 cups of sugar, divided

    Directions

    1. Wash the cranberries.
    2. Combine the orange peel, water, 1 cup of sugar in a saucepan.
    3. Heat until right before boiling.
    4. Stir the cranberries into the sugar water.
    5. Transfer the cranberries and sugar water to an airtight container.
    6. Refrigerate the cranberries at least 12 hours.
    7. Preheat the oven to 175°.
    8. Drain the cranberries.
    9. Roll the drained cranberries in the remaining cup of sugar.
    10. Spread the sugared cranberries on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
    11. Bake the sugared cranberries for 2 hours.
    12. Store the sugared cranberries in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
