How to Make Sparkling Sugared Cranberries
Getting the look of these cranberries involves a couple of different kinds of sugar. You’ll use regular granulated sugar and water to make a sugar-water syrup. Mix in the berries and let the mixture cool a bit.
After cooling enough to handle, separate the syrup and berries with a strainer. Place the sticky berries onto parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and separate them out.
I found that by mixing granulated sugar with the larger crystals of Organic White Sugar in the Raw, the sugar mixture covered the sticky berries beautifully and still gave me the sparkle I was looking for!
Rolling the berries around in the sugar is tons of fun; if you have kids I’d definitely get them involved!
Put these on cakes and pies, or use them as a beautiful garnish for your Thanksgiving turkey or Christmas ham! Enjoy the recipe and please click a rating star or leave a review to help support my blog. Thank you!Print
