The original recipe came out of a magazine I procurred many, many years ago. I've altered it slightly by adding orange zest, orange juice and replacing vanilla extract with almond extract. I think it's a nice addition to a holiday table.

Don't throw away those fresh unused cranberries. Wash and pick through them, dry them, lay them out on a small pan and freeze them. When they're frozen, toss into a freezer bag and you have cranberries for muffins.
