Cranberry Baked Beans

This summer, bring a twist to a BBQ classic with cranberry baked beans.capefearnutrition.com (16) Disclosure: The Cranberry Institute has sent me research updates, cranberry tips, some seasonal recipes as well as cranberry juice cocktail. In exchange, I’m  sharing  this information with you.  I was not financially compensated to write this post. Opinions are my own.

For as long as I can remember, baked beans have  been at every family reunion, pool party,and  backyard cookout I’ve attended on the 4th of July. But I have never seen Cranberry Baked Beans! Well,  until  I discovered the recipe sent to me by the  Cranberry Marketing Committe. Intrigued by the idea of using cranberry juice in lieu of all the ketchp, brown sugra and molasses, I immediately made a batch. They’re the bomb. And cause cranberries are native to the homeland, I think they’ll make a perfect side for your fourth of July Spread.  Recipe here. Happy Birthday America. IMG_4495_edited-2

Cranberry Nut Quick Bread

Cranberry Nut Quick Bread is a festive addition to any holiday table.Cranberry Nut Quick BreadHave you ever baked something for the very first time, then asked yourself, what have you been waiting for?  My sentiments after baking my inaugural loaf of  cranberry nut quick bread. My family must have felt the same; they polished off this loaf in less than one day!Cranberry Nut Quick BreadNow, 2 days before Christmas, they’re asking for another. Truth is, it’s so easy to make, anyone can pull it off at the last minute.

The original recipe was on page 54 (yes a carry over from my December Recipe Redux challenge) of the Philadelphia Orchestra Cookbook. Inspired by the Cranberry Marketing  Committee ingredient suggestions for Friendsgiving, I substituted in a small portion of oat flour for some of the all-purpose flour,  pistachios for the walnuts and added ginger (a relative of tumeric). The bread makes a nice last minute gift,  a festive addition to Christmas Eve dinner, or Christmas dessert buffet. Oh, and it is sooo  Santa Claus worthy!!!Cranberry Nut Quick Bread
