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.
