Cranberry Orange Nut Bread

This is my great-grandmother's recipe for cranberry-orange nut bread. It is a bit more work than other quick breads, but it's flavor and sentimentality is worth it.

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Sift this together in a large bowl.

Cut in 1/4 cup shortening

Add 1 egg, 3/4 cup orange juice, 1 Tbsp grated orange rind.

Stir in 1/2 cup chopped nuts, 1 1/2 cup chopped fresh cranberries.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour in a greased and sugared bread pan.
