1 or 2C. chopped cranberries (fresh or frozen)

2C. flour
1C. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1/4 C. shortening
3/4C. orange juice
1 Tbsp orange rind
1 egg (well beaten)
1/2 C. chopped nuts (walnuts)

Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, soda and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Combine orange juice and grated rind with well beaten egg. Pour all at once into dry ingredients, mixing just enough to dampen. Carefully fold in chopped nuts and cranberries. If frozen cranberries are used put through food chopper in frozen state. Spoon into greased loaf pan (9x5). Spread corners and sides slightly higher than center. Bake at 350 about 1 hour, until golden brown and toothpick comes out clean. Remove from pan. Cool. Store overnight for easy slicing.
