    I’m glad I read this post because I read in another to let the cranberries sit in the simple syrup for 8 hrs. I’m glad to know it can be done in one hour. I’m making a cranberry cheesecake with the sugared cranberries on top!

      Right, Joanne! Simply give the cranberries a quick dunk in the simple syrup and transfer to a cooling rack to “dry”. Just “dry” until it’s sticky enough so the sugar coating will adhere (about 1 hour) :D After the sugar coating, “dry” again so the sugar hardens and becomes crunchy! Easy peazy ;) A cranberry cheesecake with sugared cranberries will be beautiful and delicious! I’d love to see it :)
