Excellent recipe always comes out great using your products

Used this recipe for decades!

Celia from Millville, MA

I cannot find my recipe card that I had literally for decades! Glad it's here online as I got the recipe from the back of bag of OS cranberries back in the 70's. Best ever!

Very yummy!!

Dee from Salisbury , MD

I doubled the recipe because I had extra cranberries and didn't want to waste them. I forgot to double the shortening so I added a couple of tablespoons of applesauce after I had my batter in my pans. Yikes! I thought but it was still so tasty and moist! I want to take the extra loaf to work but it's so good it might not make it!

Old family favorite!

Ann from Milton, FL

This is the only Cranberry Nut Bread recipe I use. My Grandmothers and my Mother always used this recipe. We could only make it at the holidays or until we used the cranberries up out of the freezer. Same problem now except we have dried cranberries (not the same but a good substitute).

FAVORITE!!

Chergirl from Heber, AZ

Best recipe out there! I use dried, and rehydrated Cranberries. Usee the 1 and 1/2 cup amount called for, and pour boiling water over cranberried. Let sit for 20-30 minutes, then drain. Works like a charm!
