Ingredients
  1. 1 cup granulated sugar
  2. 1 cup water
  3. 1 Cinnamon Stick
  4. Peel from 1 orange
  5. 2 cups cranberries
  6. 3/4 cup granulated sugar
Instructions
  1. Rinse cranberries & set aside.
  2. In medium saucepan heat 1 cup water, 1 cup sugar, cinnamon stick, and orange peel heat until sugar is dissolved. DO NOT BOIL.
  3. Remove from heat & allow to come to room temperature. (cranberries will pop if the syrup is too hot)
  4. Once syrup is cool- pour over cranberries & place something on top of the cranberries to hold them down in the syrup since they will naturally float.
  5. Cover & refrigerate overnight.
  6. Once your cranberries have soaked for allotted time - strain out cranberries in colander & reserve syrup for other recipes.
  7. Pat cranberries dry with paper towel. They should be tacky not wet.
  8. Place cranberries on a sheet tray and sprinkle with reserved sugar. Slide pan back and forth until all cranberries are coated with sugar.
  9. Allow sugar to harden onto cranberries on a baking sheet for several hours.
  10. Store at room temperature.
