 CRANBERRY NUT BREAD                                     K.F. Braden 
2 c all purpose flour
1 c sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1/4 c shortening
3/4 c orange juice
1 tbs. grated orange rind
1 egg well beaten
c chopped nuts
1 or 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries, coarsely chopped

Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, soda and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Combine orange juice and grated rind with egg. Pour all at once into dry ingredients, mixing just enough to dampen. Carefully fold in cranberries and nuts. (If frozen berries are used put thru chopper or blender in frozen state) spoon into greased loaf pan(9x5x3), spread corners slightly higher than center. Bake in 350 oven one hour until crust is golden brown and toothpick comes out clean. Remove from pan, cool and store overnight for easy slicing.
