This is a shame, because fresh cranberries are delicious, and are good for so much more than making sauce! Their bold, tart flavor makes them a natural fit for many candy recipes, where they are able to balance out the sugar and prevent even the sweetest candies from becoming too cloying. If you find yourself with a surplus of fresh cranberries this holiday season, don't freeze them! Don't toss them! Use them to make one of these cranberry candy recipes. This list also includes a few candies made with dried cranberries, which are easier to find year-round but still have a nice tartness and flavor.
