Sugared Cranberries

2 cups of water
2 cups of sugar
2 cups of cranberries
superfine sugar

Pour water and sugar in a sauce pan. Heat over medium heat  stirring until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a simmer and remove from heat. Add cranberries and pour mixture into a bowl letting it sit for at least 8 hours or overnight Drain cranberries, saving the liquid if you want ( see note below). On a cookie sheet pour some superfine sugar and roll cranberries in sugar to coat them. Let them sit on cookie sheet for a couple of hours until the sugar has hardened.

These make a great gifts and look beautiful in jars. They need to be kept in a cool place. Great for garnishes for mixed drinks as well.

* I like to save the liquid I soak the cranberries in and reuse it for several batches. After all the cranberries have been marinated I use the liquid for cocktails.
