Cranberry Raisin Walnut Bread
Place 2 tbsp of olive oil in a large mixing bowl and set aside. Prep a large wooden butting board, dusted with flour, and set aside.
Zest orange and set aside. Then slice in half and squeeze juice into a small bowl. Place cranberries and raising in juice and allow to sit for 20 mins and then drain completely. (This will allow them to pump up and retain some of the orange flavor)
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, yeast, salt, and sugar. Then add cranberries, raisins, and zest of 1 orange.
Heat water in microwave. It should be between 115-125 degrees F (feels like bath water). Add water to flour mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until a dough comes together.
Place hands in mixing bowl with the oil. Rub hands with oil, remove dough and knead it well on your floured board incorporating the olive oil into it. Form into a ball and place in the bowl with the olive oil.
Cover with plastic wrap, set in a warm place in your kitchen, and allow dough to rise for 1 hour (it will double in size).
Remove dough and place back on the cutting board, knead it again for about 20 turns. Dust with a little flour, shape back into a ball, and place in the bowl with new plastic wrap. Allow to rise again for 30 mins.
Bake at 425 degrees for 25-30 mins. Slice and serve!
