Cranberry-Cinnamon-Vanilla Simple Syrup Recipe:

1 bag of cranberries
1 c sugar
2 c water
2 cinnamon sticks
Paste of one vanilla bean

  1. In a pot, dissolve sugar and water. Add berries, cinnamon, and vanilla. Cook until berries begin to burst, stirring occasionally.
  2. Once berries begin to burst, remove from heat and let steep (about 10 minutes)
  3. Double strain into a measuring cup and transfer to an airtight container (I use canning jars)

Syrup should keep in a refrigerator for 7-10 days
