I Would Like To Share A Recipe

I just cut a slice of this yummy bread to have in the place of toast this morning.  And I thought I'd like to share the recipe with all of you.

HOLIDAY CRANBERRY QUICK BREAD

Mix together; 4 cups flour, 2 cups sugar, dash of salt, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon baking soda, and 1/2 cup shortening.  (Mixture will resemble course crumbs.)  In a seperate bowl beat 2 eggs then add 1 3/4 cup orange juice, 2 tablespoons orange peel (you can get it dried).  Mix well and add to dry ingredients.  Then add 2 cups chopped cranberries and 1 cup chopped walnuts.  Spoon into greased loaf pans and bake at 350 degrees for approx 55 minutes. Cool in pans for 10 mins on wire rack...then remove from pans and continue cooling.  This bread can be frozen for eating later by wrapping tightly with plastic wrap and then foil.  To thaw remove wrap and let bread stand at room temp for about 2 hours.

This is a standard bread in our family during the holidays.  But really it would be good at anytime. As long as you can find the cranberries.   I've never tried it with dried cranberries but I imagine that would work too.
