This is an old recipe that has been passed down from generations past, and is so good. I hadn't heard of it for a few years, ahd then here it was, sent to me by my niece. I had to share it with you.
- In the evening, mix together the first 9 ingredients in a large pot. Bring 4 cups water to a boiling point. Pour hot water over mixture and boil for 5 minutes. Let stand overnight to cool.
- Next morning, sift together twice the flour and baking soda, and stir into cold mixture. Add currants and cherries. Pour into 4 loaf pans, and bake at 325F for about 1 1/2 hours.
- Cool completely, then wrap in foilwrap.
