Cranberries in Syrup

Soaked cranberries

To make cranberries in syrup, fresh berries are best, but it also tastes good with frozen ones! The amount of sugar and water can vary depending on how sweet you want the preserved cranberries to be, and whether you want a slightly tart but very delicious cranberry drink.

The most traditional version of cranberries in syrup uses only sugar and salt, but don't overlook the option of adding spices to make it more flavorful or intense!

Since the sweet syrup for soaked cranberries needs to cool down, it's logical to start with it. Measure the desired amount of sugar (2 tablespoons to 1 cup of sugar per 1 kg of cranberries), salt, and, optionally, spices and herbs. Cinnamon, cloves, and hot and aromatic peppers create a harmonious combination. Those who enjoy a more unique taste can experiment with adding vanilla, ginger, anise, mint, citrus zest, rosemary, or juniper berries. Honey is a great alternative to sugar, as it not only enhances the flavor but also makes the preservation even more beneficial!

Pour sugar and the other ingredients into filtered water. It is preferable to use clean artesian water. Bring the water with sugar, spices, and herbs to a boil and cook until the sugar is completely dissolved. Then, let the sweet and aromatic syrup, or essentially just sweet water (the concentration depends on the amount of water used), cool completely. To speed up the cooling process, place the container with the sweet water in a larger container filled with ice water and periodically replace it with cold water as it warms up.

Thoroughly sort the cranberries, removing any leaves that may be present, although a few leaves are acceptable. The important thing is to avoid adding rotten or damaged berries and any forest debris to the preservation. Rinse the cranberries with cold water and drain them in a colander. Place the desired amount of cranberries into clean jars or food containers that have been washed with baking soda and scalded: fill halfway, two-thirds, or almost full.
