Cranberry Nut Bread Recipe

Cranberry Bread


Making Cranberry Nut Bread

Today I am making Cranberry Nut Bread., My husband needs to have some small gift items ,to pass out to clients as they come into his office. He loves this bread and I thought that others would like it too..Each day I will be making a few things and he will take them in and pass out. I only made the one batch, it smells so good baking I wish I had made more...But I have to move on to some other items..spiced nuts, cookies, etc.

This recipe made up 3 loaves using mini loaf pans..

I wrapped each loaf in plastic wrap, and then white tissue paper..I then slipped them into the cute little gingerbread men bags that I had purchased at Michael's..I wrapped them in the white tissue first, for no other reason than it made the design on the bags more visible...Tied then up with cute little ribbons..and now I will need to attach his business card...I think I will punch a small hole, attach a cord and write the greeting on the back of the card.

Wrapped And Ready To Go

Did you know that approximately ninety- five percent of cranberries are made into products such as cranberry juice, cranberry sauce, and sweetened dried cranberries? The remaining are sold fresh.

This is because, cranberries are not only sour but bitter and are considered by most people to be too sharp eaten plain and raw.

Did you know that cranberry juice cocktail is more highly sweetened than even soda drinks, which have been linked to obesity? cranberry juice cocktail contains one teaspoon of sugar per ounce.

Usually cranberries solf fresh are cooked into a jelly known as cranberry sauce, Cranberry sauce is traditionally served with roast turkey at most Thanksgiving dinners. Also used in baking muffins and bread, such as the recipe above.

At Christmas time cranberries are also purchased to string along with popcorn to use as garland on a mantle or Christmas tree.
