    2      cups          flour -- all purpose
    1      cup           sugar
    1 1/2  teaspoons     Baking Powder,Double-Acting
      1/2  teaspoon      Baking Soda
    1      teaspoon      salt

    1 1/2  Cups          cranberries -- coarse chop
 
 Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, soda and salt.
 Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. (Do in food
processor?)  Combine orange juice and peel with beaten egg. Pour all at once into
dry ingredients, mixing just until dampened. Carefully fold in nuts and
cranberries.  (If frozen cranberries are used, put through food chopper in frozen
state)
 Spoon into greased loaf pan (9x5x3) .  Spread corners and sides slightly higher
than center.
 Bake in 350 degree oven for about 1 hour, until crust is golden brown and
toothpick inserted comes out clean.
 Remove from pan and cool.
 Store overnight for easier slicing.
 
 This is the original Ocean Spray recipe and is delicious.
 I sometimes add a coupe of tablespoons of chopped dried apricots to this.
