Yaaaaaaaay the holidays are here and these are a surprisingly delicious little holiday sparkle! They’re easy to make, packed with flavor and texture and great for garnishing cocktails, desserts or just eating right out of a bowl. My daughter loves the tart sweetness of these little cranberry beauties!
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup water
- 2 cups fresh cranberries
- 2 sprigs rosemary
- 1 cup granulated sugar (to roll it all in)
~ In a saucepan over low heat, heat the water and 1 cup sugar until warm and sugar dissolves. Cool until you can put your finger in the liquid.
~ Wash and dy cranberries. Once liquid is cool enough not to cause the cranberries to burst but still warm, add cranberries and rosemary.
~ Cover and let cool to room temperature. Refrigerate and let soak overnight.
~ Strain berries and rosemary and reserve the rosemary infused syrup for holiday cocktails or desserts.
~ Blot cranberries and rosemary with a paper towel so that they sticky but not wet. Then work in batches rolling the berries and rosemary in the remaining sugar to coat. Place on parchment lined baking sheet and let dry until hardened. Eat and smile!!
~ Store at room temperature.
