3 1⁄2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups water
2 cups fresh cranberries
In a sauce pan over low heat, combine two cups of water and two cups of sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved, creating a simple syrup. Make sure not to bring to a boil. In a medium bowl, combine cranberries and simple syrup. Cover with saran wrap and refrigerate for twenty-four hours.
Strain cranberries. On a cookie sheet, evenly spread 1 1⁄2 cups of granulated sugar. Roll cranberries into sugar to coat evenly. Spread cranberries in a single layer on the cookie sheet and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour or until dry. The tart and sweet flavors pop in your mouth and are a great addition to your holiday table.
