Green Christmas Complement to Sugared Cranberries?

Hi All,

I made a recipe for Thanksgiving that came out well but was all red. Now, I'd like to replicate it for Christmas but add in some green. (The Thanksgiving recipe was fresh cranberries soaked in simple syrup and then rolled in granulated sugar.)

Can anyone think of a green berry (or similar) that I can do the same thing with so that I can serve both red and green together in one candy dish? I was thinking green grapes but not sure if those would turn out well because of they are already juicy and their skins are kind of tough. Any other ideas?

Thanks!

shelled pistachio nuts? Coat them with a sugar glaze and toast them a bit in a fry pan. I've not done it with pistachios, but it's great with almonds and cashews.

Thanks for the idea. I looked up a few recipes for it, and they all say that the pistachios start to turn a yellow/golden brown when toasting. I'm looking for a nice green if at all possible.

(If I find nothing else to do, I may try the pistachios though!)

Cranberries and nuts are a good pairing. Food coloring for the nuts?
