I have to say that this recipe is AWESOME!
And that’s not to say that the other recipes that I post aren’t. They’re good too. But this recipe is seriously fantastic. Unless you don’t like fish.
2 cups granulated sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1.Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan.
2.Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for about 3 minutes. Stir.
3.Remove from heat and add the vanilla extract, and stir.
4.Allow the syrup to cool, then refrigerate the syrup in a tightly closed jar for up to a month.
Feel free to experiment! Try replacing some or all of the granulated sugar with brown sugar or raw sugar for a bit of a caramel flavor, or replace the vanilla extract with another extract like hazelnut, almond, mint, Irish creme, orange, rum or raspberry.
2 cups water

2 1/2 C dried cranberries
1 C frozen strawberries (no need to thaw)
3/4 C red wine (I suggest a dry wine such as shiraz, merlot or cabernet)
1/2 C sugar
1. Boil some water and pour over cranberries. Let sit for 10-15 minutes. This will help rehydrate the cranberries and remove the oils added during processing.
2. Drain water from berries and add to medium saucepan along with the strawberries, wine and sugar.
