Boston Brown Bread


  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup rye flour
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 1 cup sour milk (add 1 T. white vinegar to milk to sour)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • tsp. salt
  • cup raisins

Mix all 8 ingredients together. Pour into well-buttered bread mold or a tin with fitting cover.
Fill 2/3 full and cover tightly.

Put mold into large pot on a rack, with cover and add boiling water until halfway up around mold.

Steam 4 hours. Add more water as needed to keep at proper level.

Remove from water, take off cover, put in 300° oven to dry off for 15 minutes.

Remove from mold.

While hot, draw a string around bread, cross and pull ends to cut into neat slices.

Serve with baked beans.
