Cranberries are finally available! I have been looking forward to this for months now. Cranberries are a seasonal treat that I enjoy.  I try to freeze a few bags when they are in season, but apparently, I forgot to do that last year.

I always say that my best recipes were passed to me by friends and family!   This family gem is no different.  Cranberry Bread with Cranberry Butter is one of my favorites. It’s delicious warm out of the oven, but my favorite way to have it myself is lightly toasted and served warm with this flavorful butter.

With many planning for Christmas already, this bread makes a thoughtful and lovely gift.  It’s also wonderful to take to parties and gatherings during the holiday season.
