Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a 4-cup fluted ring
mold. Stir the flour, chopped cranberries, sugar,
walnuts, baking powder, and baking soda in a large
bowl to mix well. Beat the egg, cranberry-orange
sauce, milk, and melted butter in a second bowl with a
wire whisk or a fork; when thoroughly blended, stir in
the flour mixture until just mixed.

Spoon the batter into the prepared mold. Bake for 1
hour until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes
out clean. Cool the bread in the pan on a wire rack
for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan and cool
completely. Stir the apple jelly in a small saucepan
over low heat until warm and melted; brush over the
top of the cooled bread. Decorate, if desired, with
whole cranberries, green candied cherries, and a light
dusting of confectioners' sugar. Store, wrapped in
plastic, in the refrigerator for up to 1 week; brush
with jelly and decorate after storing.

Makes one 6-inch ring loaf or about 12 servings.
