Tips for nut breads

Tips for nut breads
Nut breads are great for breakfast, brunch, snacks, tea sandwiches, with salads, toasted, covered with fruit or ice cream and make wonderful hospitality gifts. Wrap in a decorative kitchen towel or cellophane and add to gift baskets. More tips:
– Nut breads slice easier when cold; trim crust for sandwiches while frozen
– Bread wrapped in foil will keep in the refrigerator 5-6 days.
– Frozen bread slices easily if only one or two slices are needed. Return remainder of the loaf to the freezer for later use. Cut slices will thaw within 10-15 minutes.
– Glaze for nut breads: 1/4 cup powdered sugar, juice of one lemon. Mix and pour over hot bread.
– Mix cream cheese and your favorite preserves to spread over nut bread.
– Peel and mash over-ripe bananas and mix in a little lemon juice. Freeze in measured amounts. Thaw for making banana bread, cake or muffins.
– One pound of apples yields 3 cups pared, diced or sliced when making apple bread.
– When using raisins, rinse thoroughly in hot water and drain before adding. This will make them plump, juicy and will not withdraw moisture from the batter.
