Cranberry Thanksgiving: Grandmother's Famous Cranberry Bread

Reading Cranberry Thanksgiving (aff) has been a part of our Thanksgiving tradition for the last five years. We've enjoyed utilizing different elements in the unit study curriculum, Five in a Row, Volume 1 for this story over the years as well. But there has always been one important portion of the story we haven't made time to do: bake the secret recipe for Grandmother's Famous Cranberry Bread.

Today we actually made Grandmother's Famous Cranberry Bread. It's secret recipe was highly sought after in the story, and we now know why! It is super yummy.

Making individual ingredients turn into something incredibly tummy satisfying!

All three of our little ones helped gather the ingredients and carefully measure everything we needed. 


Our oldest used a sifter (or shifter as the kids were calling it in the beginning- too funny, but shows how many times we've used one!) for the first time. We made sure to sift all the powdery ingredients a couple of times through together.


And there's no way to grate orange zest and not eat an orange, too! A few fresh cranberries made their way into our mouths as well.


 After all the ingredients were poured into the pan, it looked like this.


 And our kitchen looked like this! - even after a little picking up


As our bread cooled on the wire rack and it's aroma filled the air, it was all we could do not to dig in!



I am so glad we took time today to explore the elements of leavening chemical reactions and to look at the physical properties of fresh cranberries once again. Plus, honing our mathematical dry and wet ingredient measuring skills and fine tune our fine motor skills while dicing fresh cranberries was so much fun! 

A wonderful way to spend an hour or so on a rainy December afternoon.

*The recipe for Grandmother's Famous Cranberry Bread can be found on the back cover of the book. And it's easily viewed as the second image on the Amazon link, too.
