1 cup chopped pecans (if you desire)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Using a sharp knife scrape the colored rind from the orange and mix it with the cranberries. Squeeze the juice of the orange into a measuring cup and add enough water to make 3/4 cup. Beat the egg and add it to the juice. Mix together the flour, salt, baking powder, soda and sugar in a large bowl. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients , mixing with two knives until crumbly.

Pour the juice into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Gently fold in the cranberries and nut. Pour the batter into a 9″ x 5″ loaf pan.bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes in the pan and then remove from the pan and cool completely.
