I really do love cranberries! And for so many reasons. 😉
Their unique taste,beautiful deep red color, nutritional value, even their shiny, glossy texture! The interesting way they are grown and harvested.
And of course, their special significance at Christmas and all the memories that enjoying cranberries over the years, conjures up. 🙂
My blog-bud Caroline Brown over at Earth Friendly Gardeninghas graciously agreed to do a co-post (new blog word???LOL) on cranberries.
I’m providing a cranberry loaf recipe (see end of this post)and Caroline shares her wisdom on this fall fav. fruit in this archive post from:

Happy Baking and I do hope you are also enjoying a winter wonderland, where you are!
I’m not much of a dessert fan but I do enjoy fruit and nut loaves.
These are a couple of my all time favs. One from my cookbook, Not Just for Vegetarians: Cranberry Mandarin Orange Loaf and one from Martha Stewart for one of the best Banana Breads I’ve ever tasted.
