Cranberries. Cranberries. Cranberries! I came across this sweet confectionary on pisforparty.blogspot.com. The ingredients and preparation are simple and the presentation idea is elegant. The cranberries burst in your mouth and are tart and sweet. The poppers will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week in an airtight container. CRANBERRY POPPERS 2 cups granulated sugar 2 cups water 1 bag fresh cranberries 1 cup superfine or powdered sugar Dissolve the granulated sugar in water over low heat in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer; remove from heat. (Do not boil—you do not want the cranberries to pop.) Stir in cranberries; pour mixture into a bowl which will be refrigerated for 8 hours. Drain cranberries. Fill a container or bowl with the powdered sugar and coat the entire berry with it by rolling it around in the container. Spread out the berries on wax paper and wait for them to dry (about 1–2 hours). Keep in a cool, dry place for up to a week before serving. 30 PEACHY
