what you'll need

  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 - 1 cup sugar

let's do it

  • Wash cranberries, pat dry and place in medium sized bowl.
  • Warm syrup in saucepan; do not overheat—if syrup is hot it will pop the cranberries. Remove from heat and gently coat cranberries. Cover bowl with lid or cellophane and refrigerate overnight.
  • Drain cranberries of excess syrup. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Place sugar in large wide bowl.
  • Add cranberries in ½ cup increments and thoroughly coat in sugar; place on cookie sheet and separate. If sugar gets too damp, replace with fresh sugar and continue coating cranberries until finished.
  • Let stand for 1 hour until dry or ready to use.
