Sharing Mountain Recipes
by Randi Lee Levin
This bread, full of molasses, has just enough spice to fill your home with the feel of old country goodness. The flavor always makes me think of how simple but delicious life must have been like over a century ago, before modern technology, prepackaged and/or fast foods became the norm. I often envy those harder times, for in many ways they seem so much simpler. Whenever I need to get away from the daily hustle and bustle of modern life, I'll make a loaf of this recipe, dream of what life must have been like long ago and then walk to a neighbor's to say hello and share a few slices; just like they did before cars, fast foods and cell phones.
