A favorite occasional treat growing up on a Saturday night was New England Brown Bread from B&M. This steamed molasses bread was traditional throughout most of New England during colonial and early American periods. The bread was traditionally steamed but can be conveniently found canned in most regional supermarkets throughout New England. Alex and Rita both thought it was OK but would not be something they would seek out, I appreciated the nostalgia and flavor. It is a perfect accompaniment to a meal of franks and beans or other New England fare.
Remove from can and wrap in foil to heat in the oven.
Serve with a high quality butter and enjoy.
