Wash 2 cups of large, firm cranberries; drain well, and spread in bottom of buttered baking dish.
Sprinkle with 1 1/2 cups sugar, and cover dish tightly. Bake in 350 degree oven for 1 hour. Stir once to distribute sugar.
Let cranberries cool in the syrup. Lift out onto waxed paper. Sift a little sugar over cranberries, and let stand until all are firm and dry.
