Sugared Cranberries

Cranberry fanatic.
Dried cranberries, cranberry juice, cranberry and leftover turkey sandwiches, cranberry pork, and now I've discovered my new cran-addiction: Sugared cranberries.

Seriously, this is Nature's sweet tart. Tart and sweet and (literally) burst-in-your-mouth flavor. Candy. Great in pancakes (yes, I'm that obsessed). Cool cupcake topper.

Yum. in. my. Tum.
Sugared Cranberries

Prep Time: 8 hours
Cook Time: 10 minutes

1 (8.5 oz) bag fresh cranberries
1.5 cups water
1.5 cups sugar

1. Bring sugar and water to a boil, stirring so that the sugar is completely dissolved.
2. Add cranberries, making sure everybody gets dunked. (They will float.) Immediately remove from heat, placing in the fridge for at least 8 hours; I did it overnight.
3. Drain cranberries, and dry on cookie sheet lined with a paper towel. Remove any rotten or exploded ones.
4. Once dry, sprinkle liberally with extra sugar. Pop 'em in and enjoy!

Again, photos taken with an iPhone, sorry the quality stinks!
