    HeatherFeather's Note:

    So named for the "blush" of red color this bread gets from the tomato juice in the recipe. From one of my Aunt Alta's recipe clippings, originally from a Borden flyer.

      An attractive bread with just a touch of sweetness that everyone enjoyed. I had just a bit of tomato juice to use up, so halved the recipe and used the bread machine for initial kneading and rising (used 3 c flour and added about 2 T additional water); shaped and baked in one loaf as directed. Thanks, HeatherFeather!
