Boston Brown Bread

  • 1 cup graham flour
  • 1 cup yellow corn meal
  • 1 cup rye meal
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsps baking soda
  • Other:
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup molasses
Thoroughly mix together the dry ingredients. Add the molasses and buttermilk. Mix completely. Fill buttered molds 2/3 full. Steam for 2 1/2 hours then dry in a oven heated to 350F at 350°F for 5 minutes (be patient, you rascal).

This bread may be oven cooked instead of steamed, keeping the oven heat at 300°F constantly. It demands 1-1 1/2 hours cooking time according to the size of the bread pans or molds, the large sizes requiring a longer time.
