cranberry bread

we are only one week from thanksgiving and i am so excited!  i thought i would share one of my favorite family recipes:

my mom and i made loaves and loaves of this every year when i was growing up as thanksgiving gifts for family members, neighbors, family friends, and my teachers.  i always loved decorating the aluminum foil with stickers.  it is so delicious and SO easy!

1 cup fresh cranberries (whole)
1 beaten egg
3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon grated orange peel (optional)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

- preheat oven to 350 degrees
- mix all ingredients until moistened
- place batter in 9x5x3 loaf pan
- bake for 60 minutes
