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. At the age of 85, all new projects are interesting.Memories and friends of the past are with me every day. I love to share my thoughts along with comments and opinions (of course) of this day and today's times and challenges. Photography is my hobby. Although I haven't done many photos of people, I've found there are photo challenges in every direction. Born and raised in Michigan, the peaceful woods and wildlife have always attracted me. Graduating from high school in 1953, college was of no interest to me. My Dad used to say, "some folks get a college education and may still not have enough sense to come in out of the rain." That's always been enough for me because I do, have that much sense, about the rain. I have learned one important fact about life. Old isn't as old as I always thought it was.
