Whether atop a pie or dropped in a cocktail, nothing is quite as festive for Thanksgiving as sugared cranberries. But don’t leave those tart little (and antioxidant-packed) gems for the pros–here is a simple and scrumptious way to make them at home.
P.S. Parents and teachers can visit Creating with Cranberries for a fun and interactive enter-to-win contest this holiday season.
2 C granulated sugar
1 T water
1 12-ounce package of Ocean Spray Fresh or Frozen Cranberries
1 egg white
Rinse fresh or frozen cranberries with cold water in a colander. Drain well and set aside. Make an egg white wash by whisking one egg white and one tablespoon of water in a small bowl. Pour some granulated sugar on a plate or shallow bowl. Dip cranberries, one at a time, in egg wash, then roll in sugar. Place coated berries on sheet of waxed paper to dry. Continue to create the desired amount of berries.
Note: Sugared cranberries arranged with mint leaves look spectacular on top of cakes, brie crostini or place a few sugared cranberries on individual servings of cake, pies or tortes.
