Description

Make something different for holiday parties this year – Boozy Sugared Cranberries! Sweet and tart with a burst of flavor they are hard to stop eating.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 bag (12 oz – 340 g) fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup (220 g) sugar
  • 1 cup (235 ml) water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) spiced rum
  • 12 cups sugar for coating

Instructions

  1. Heat the sugar and water in a small saucepan until all the sugar is melted.
  2. Transfer to a heatproof bowl and add the vanilla and rum.
  3. Pour in the cranberries and let them soak in the sugar water for 1-3 hours.
  4. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cranberries out of the syrup and onto paper towels or a wire rack. Let them dry for 10-15 minutes and then roll them in granulated sugar.
  5. Store at room temperature not fully airtight or they will condense and the sugar will start to dissolve.

Notes

To speed up the process I put a layer of sugar in a small tupperware then added cranberries and sprinkled more sugar on top then shook it (with a lid) to coat. Over time the sugar will start to clump a little with this method but you can coat them all with less work.
