Cranberry Orange Bread

It is my turn to bring refreshments to church tomorrow for our fellowship time and I decided to make Cranberry-Orange Bread. I love this bread because it actually has a chewy texture and tastes delicious.

Sift together 4 cups flour, 2 cups sugar, 3 tsp. baking powder, 3 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. baking soda.

Fold in 3 cups of raisins and 3 cups chopped cranberries. I keep my cranberries in the freezer and pulse them in my food processor.
