Alaskan Cranberry Bread

Living in Alaska we are blessed to have an abundance of wild cranberries growing in the woods right out our backdoor! In the fall we ride the 4-wheeler to our favorite spot and pick to our hearts content. I even carry along a little stool to sit on while picking! My Mom used to bake this amazing cranberry bread when I was growing up and passed this recipe down to me. Family recipes are the best! My husband and I pick as many cranberries as we can to use in different recipes all during the winter months. We have a vacuum sealer and after filling the bags and sealing we freeze our bounty. I hope you enjoy making this recipe. It can be made with chopped store bought cranberries but if you can get Alaskan cranberries they are perfect for this recipe.

After a great day of Cranberry picking!
