1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup cranberries
Select firm, red cranberries and prick once or twice with a needle.
Boil the sugar in the water until it spins a thread. Put in cranberries and cook gently until syrup jellies when tested from the tip of a spoon. Remove berries one at a time and place on wax paper. Let stand until dry.
Dip the berries in granulated sugar.
These are very decorative and can serve as an excellent garnish.
Makes 20 – 25.
