Sugared cranberries are great in cocktails and bubbly over Christmas and the holidays and they make a great and colourful addition to seasonal Christmas desserts and platters. Sweet, tart, flavoured with orange zest and super easy to make.
Simple Christmas Recipe for Sugared Cranberries
Rough Recipe (let's be real it doesn't have to be exact)
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
Zest and Juice of one orange
2 cups cranberries
Simple syrup (recipe above)
Sugar (about 1 cup)
Add sugar, water, zest and juice of one orange to a pot. Bring the simple syrup to a boil and simmer 5-10 minutes. In a separate container, add in 2 cups of frozen cranberries and pour the syrup over them once it's finished cooking. Weigh the cranberries down in the syrup and set aside over night. o coat the cranberries the next day, add some sugar and orange zest to a shallow tray. Strain out your cranberries and toss in the sugar and zest. Place the sugared cranberries on a tray to dry for several hours until the outer sugar shell is crisp. I like to reserve the simple syrup, cook it down a bit further and use it for cocktails. We used these cranberries in our Prosecco after I finished this video, they look really pretty in drinks and I’ve also put these on dessert plates and cheese boards around the holidays.
