*Cranberry Apple Cinnamon Syrup
In a pot, add Nova Scotia cranberries, Honeycrisp apples, cinnamon sticks, water, and white sugar. Simmer over medium-low heat until fruit softens and sugar is dissolved. Cool. Strain liquid from solids. Liquid is the syrup and solids can be saved as toppings for ice cream, cheese, or yogurt. 


*Candied Cranberries
In a pot, simmer cranberries over medium-low heat with 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup water until sugar is dissolved. Stir until cranberries are well coated. Using a slotted spoon, transfer cranberries to wire rack. Let dry for one hour. Combine 1 1/2 cup sugar with 1 tbsp. of cinnamon. Working in batches, roll cranberries in cinnamon sugar until well coated. Let dry for one hour.
