Boston brown bread: Molasses bread steamed in coffee cans
Just as slow baking develops the full flavor of old-fashioned baked beans, slow steaming mellows the delightful molasses flavor of Boston brown bread.
Made with enriched flour, this bread — in addition to contributing much-needed iron to the menu — also adds its portion of vitamin B1.
Delicately moist and easy to slice, Boston brown bread is the perfect accompaniment for that Down East Dinner. Serve it with pats of butter.
Children will welcome its appearance in their school lunch boxes. Spread it with soft, cream cheese or thick jam, or with their favorite peanut butter.
