Ingredients

  • 1 cup 100% orange juice
  • 1 and 1/2 cups cane sugar, divided (white sugar will work okay, but cane is best!)
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries

Instructions

  • Line 1-2 large pans or trays with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a small pot, combine the orange juice and 1 cup of the sugar. Bring to a simmer and whisk until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the cranberries until coated in the sugar. Cover the pot with a lid and let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Strain the cranberries (the syrup can be used in a simple syrup for cocktails/mocktails). Using a wooden spoon, separate the cranberries and place them on the prepared pan. Allow to dry for 45 minutes to an hour at room temperature.
  • Place the remaining 1/2 cup cane sugar on a large plate and transfer the cranberries to the plate. Roll the cranberries in the sugar to coat. Once coated, they're ready to use and eat! :)

Notes

Nutritional information is for 1/4 cup servings. The recipe makes a total of 2 cups of berries.
