A friend shared this with me several years ago
when a group of us were swapping favorite holiday recipes.
I wasn't too sure if I'd like it,
but she swore it was amazing.
She was right!
It was an instant hit with my family!!
It's like 'healthy' candy that you just pop into your mouth.
One after the other.....
again and again and again!
It's better made the night before serving
so it has time to air dry thoroughly.
1 regular size bag of fresh cranberries (2 lbs)
1 egg white
Gallon size Ziploc bag
Add one teaspoon of water to the egg white and beat by hand with a fork in a small bowl.
Put 1/2 of the cranberries in the Ziploc bag. Add only half of the egg white mixture to the cranberries, zip shut and thoroughly coat the cranberries until they're all shiny.
Add 1 - 2 cups of sugar to the shiny cranberries, zip shut and gently toss them until as much sugar as possible sticks to the cranberries.
Spread out on a large waxed paper covered cookie sheet and allow to air dry completely (preferably overnight).
You're gonna love 'em, so go ahead and make the other half of the cranberries and the rest of your egg white mixture while you're at it!
This is an amazing addition to any holiday relish tray or great by itself!
I'd recommend only making as much as you think
you'll consume in a 24-48 hour period.
It's best at room temperature and the cranberries
will get mushy if left out for more than a couple of days.
That's usually not a problem for us cuz
we scarf them down pretty quickly.
Enjoy and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
