Not the candy, but this recipe for candied cranberries. It's really simple...soak the cranberries in simple syrup overnight.
Then toss with sugar.
The first batch I made I doubled, and I used the remaining simple syrup to set another bag of cranberries soaking. For this bunch, I packaged some in mini-takeout style boxes (inside ziploc bags) as individual gifts and put the rest in an airtight plastic container to bring for a work party.
On first taste, I wasn't too sure about them. Then I realized I kept going back for just one more berry. The tartness is a great counter to the season's sweetness. I could see packing them in glass Ball jars with pretty wrapping as a hostess gift.
