In 1914 February 7 was a Saturday.
I tried making Boston Brown Bread!
It’s not the usual cylinder, because I didn’t have a brown bread mold, nor any of the other traditional items for shaping – a melon mold, a one-pound baking powder can, a five-pound lard can, or even the modern coffee can. I really need to up my mold game. That’s what the bread looks like when steamed in a pudding basin.
You can see the process and a taste test in the video below.
It’s a bit different from the kind you can get in a can.
