Cranberry Orange Walnut Bread
“Coming from Oregon, a state famous for its cranberries, this bread is a given at our house. Each fall my husband and I scrounge around for walnuts to go in it. It’s a regular on our table, and not just at Thanksgiving. I freeze the berries so I have a ready supply all year long.” —Elaine Kremenak, Grants Pass, Oregon
