  1. mix water and sugar in a saucepan and simmer until sugar dissolves to make a simple syrup.
  2. let the syrup cook a bit so it wont burst your cranberries, should be warm-hot, not so hot you can't touch it. pour over cranberries, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. drain and toss in coarse sugar. work in small batches to avoid the sugar getting too damp. lay cranberries out on a cookie sheet to dry for a few hours.
  4. toss in the regular sugar to take care of any damp spots.
  5. serve on a cheese spread, in a bowl next to the christmas cookies, or on top of custards and puddings.
