Sugared Cranberries

I love cranberries and these were a perfect addition to the gift baskets I was making for Madeline's daycare teachers. They were simple to make and sweet and tart at the same time. They'll definitely be going on my list to make every holiday!


2 Tbsp hot water
2 Tbsp honey
10 oz fresh cranberries
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar

In a small bowl, mix together the honey with the hot water. Orange zest, vanilla extract or cinnamon can be added to this mixture to add flavor. I added 1 teaspoon of vanilla.

Soak 1 package of raw cranberries in the honey/water mixture until coated.

Sprinkle both sugars on a cookie sheet and mix well. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the wet cranberries to the sugar mixture. Stir until all the cranberries are coated and leave in the sugar mixture for 30 minutes or until sugar coating hardens.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
