Sugared Cranberries

These were also made for Thanksgiving 2014.  I absolutely love them and could not stop eating them!

Sugared Cranberries from Our Best Bites
12-ounce bag fresh cranberries
1 c sugar
1 c water
*additional sugar for rolling

Wash cranberries and discard damaged ones. Place in a bowl. Combine sugar and water in a pot and heat until simmering. Stir until sugar is dissolved and let cool for a few minutes until warm (not hot). Pour over cranberries and let sit in fridge, covered, overnight. Use a slotted spoon to remove berries from syrup. Set berries on a cooling rack that is placed over foil to collect drips. Spread berries out so they are not touching each other. Let dry for 1 hour. Roll berries a handful at a time in sugar.  Place sugared berries on a baking sheet, or foil, etc. and let dry for an hour or two.I prefer to store in the fridge in an airtight container.. Try not to stack them too deep, the more they rub against each other long term, the greater chance of  sugar rubbing off.
