Cranberry Banana Bread with Orange sauce
********[Originally posted in 2009] ***********
Delicious fruited bread to eat on a Saturday morning or to serve for a brunch or afternoon tea.
Bake the night before plan to serve it.
Cranberries were probably first known as crane berries because cranes living near cranberry bogs fed on the fruit. Later they were dubbed “bounce berries” because by the way ripe berries jump if dropped (bruised ones stay put).
The marshy waters of Cape Cod are a prime source of this native wetland berry and they are also in southern New Jersey.
