I don't even know what it was I wanted to do; I just ended up fascinated by the fact I had just purchased two tin cans of cookies, and, when flipping open Glezer's book, there was that picture of that bread sticking out of tin cans; the Boston Brown Bread! So, sometimes if not all the time, a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do:
boston brown bread
I'd like to make Glezer's brown bread. I made Boston Brown Bread years ago and always steamed it, the traditional way. This recipe bakes the bread in the oven. Has anyone tried this, baking it seems like an easy alternative. Also, I quit making this bread because I worried about using the coffee cans...leaded seams??? or whatever. Is this another unnecessary worry? Any suggestions about what to use instead of cans?
