Fresh cranberries are available at Thanksgiving and Christmas but
I like to keep them in my freezer to use in this muffin which I
enjoy year round. The tartness of cranberries and flavor of orange
combine for a great taste sensation.
If the cranberries are large, it is a good idea to cut them in half.
The wet and dry ingredients are folded together just until moistened.
An attractive muffin that is moist and so yummy!
