How to make sugared cranberries:
Rinse cranberries and remove any soft or bad cranberries.
In a medium sized saucepot combine ½ cup sugar and the water. Over medium heat stir until the sugar dissolves completely.
Stir in the cranberries until well coated.
Using a slotted spoon transfer to a wire rack or parchment lined baking sheet and allow cranberries to dry for an hour.
After an hour, roll the cranberries in the remaining sugar. Best to do this in batches so you can get the cranberries well coated.
Serve in a bowl or stick on toothpicks for a tasty cocktail stirrer!
Tips and Tricks
I've made this with fresh and frozen cranberries and it turns out delicious with both. The batch made with frozen cranberries didn't last quite as long (meaning they didn't stay as firm as the batch with the fresh cranberries).
