Mrs. Quickel’s Baked Cranberries (no.1)

Florence Quickel and her husband were friends of my parents when I was a young girl. I remember going to their home on a little lake called Ambrose Lake north of the town where I grew to adulthood. The handwritten letter that contained four recipes and a note to my Mother was apparently written at or near the time of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. I will post her note after the last recipe which will be Apricot Squares. Hope you take the time to read it. I will record her recipes just as she has written them.

*************************

In a shallow pan place 1 lb Cranberries, 2 1/4 C. sugar. Place in oven about 375 deg. & bake till soft. (watch carefully)

Take shallow small pan & take 1 tablsp creamery butter & toast 1 cup broken pieces of walnuts. (this can be done in oven at same time you bake cran.) This needs watching because it will burn very quickly.

When cran. are cooked, add the nuts, 1 cup orange marmalade, juice of 1 lemon.

The future is right ahead of me and new projects seem to beckon... Friends and memories of times past remain with me today. I love to share my stories along with comments and opinions (of course) of today's challenges. Photography is my hobby and opportunities to capture the scenes before me are mine for the taking. Born and raised in Michigan, the peaceful woods and wildlife trails have always attracted me. Graduating from high school in the early fifties, college was of no interest to me. I have learned one important fact about life; whover decided when a person becomes "old"...didn't know what they were talking about...My theory is; you're as old as you think you are....(I'm thinking about it..haven't decided yet.)
