DIRECTIONS

  • Grease 8 WIDE-MOUTH pint canning jars with melted shortening.
  • Use a brush and avoid getting grease on the jar rims.
  • Cream shortening and sugar.
  • Beat in eggs and applesauce.
  • Sift together the dry ingredients and blend them into the applesauce mixture.
  • Add the raisins and nuts and divide the batter evenly between 8 widemouth pint jars.
  • The jars will be more than half full.
  • Bake open jars about 60 minutes in an oven at 325 degrees.
  • When done, quickly remove one hot jar at a time and clean its sealing edge.
  • Immediately apply and firmly tighten a two-piece wide-mouth canning lid.
  • The lid will form a vacuum seal as the jar cools.
  • Jars of cooled bread may be stored on the pantry shelf with other canned foods or may be placed in a freezer.
  • The bread is safe to eat as long as jars remain vacuum sealed and free of mold growth.
