These juicy little treats taste like nature's own SweeTarts. And, oh, what they do to a bowl of oatmeal. James Schend, Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin

    1 cup


  • 1 medium orange
  • 1/2 cup honey

  • Transfer to a small bowl; stir in cranberries. Refrigerate, covered, 8 hours or overnight.
  • Drain cranberries, allowing berries to stand 15 minutes. Discard orange peel and cooking liquid.
  • Place sugar in a small bowl. Add cranberries, a few at a time, and toss to coat. Transfer to a parchment-paper lined baking sheet. Let stand until completely dry, about 30 minutes. Store, covered, at room temperature for up to 3 days.
