Cranberry Syrup

I made this the other day and was intending to make dried sugared cranberries with it. Instead since I ran out of time I am going to use it as a fun holiday syrup for the holidays. It is so good and full of cranberry flavor.

I used it on the cranberry orange cake I made yesterday too! It is pretty versatile and you could add some orange or lemon zest to it also for another level of flavor.
