A friend stayed with us recently and he's left a litre of this behind. None of us want to drink it! Is there something I can cook with it? I was thinking there might be something interesting like the gammon in coke - something like that?
CRAISIN CRANBERRY BREAD 2 cups flour 1 cup sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla or orange extract 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 3/4 cup butter, melted 1 egg, beaten 1 teaspoon orange peel, grated 3/4 cup cranberry juice or buttermilk 1 1/2 cups Craisins 1 1/2 cups cranberries, fresh, chopped 1/2 fresh peeled orange, pulped (optional) 1 teaspoon grated orange zest (optional) 1/2 cup chopped pecans or slivered almonds Combine all ingredients, taking care not to overmix. Mixture should still be lumpy. Spread batter in a greased and lightly floured loaf or small bundt pan. Sprinkle top lightly with sugar.
Bake in a pre-heated 350°F oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until lightly browned on top.
Cocktails would be wasted unless we kept the juice for about 6 weeks until my birthday! I really only drink socially and dh is out. He will only drink wine or beer and dd is 13. Actually, she's having a sleepover tonight so I could quickly mix in some vodka or brandy - or better still, both - and take them up a tray? What do you think?
Good idea re soaking dried fruit in the juice overnight, Wally. I'll do that now.
