Just took a loaf of bread out of the freezer last night. Baked in the
machine about two weeks ago. This one is made with peanut butter. Was
craving something sweet so toasted an end slice, slathered it with
homemade raspberry fig jam and ate it. The peanut butter flavor came
through nicely with the raspberry fig flavor on the top note. This one
is going to be a winner.

The raspberry fig jam is made with No Sugar added raspberry flavor Jello
and crushed figs. I've also made cherry fig jam using the Jello and,
next year, if we get figs, will make black cherry fig jam. Recipe is an
old one from a 1964 Texas Extension Service pamphlet. Anyone wants the
recipe to either the bread or the jam drop me an off group email or I
will post it here if there is enough demand.

George, hoping for rain

Flavored fig preserves


4 cups sugar
one 3-oz. pkg. fruit flavored gelatin
4 cups figs

Combine sugar and gelatin. Grind or chop figs, including peel. Combine
all ingredients. Cook on on medium high until the consistency of honey.
Pour into clean warm jars, seal, process for 10 minutes in boiling water
bath. Remove from BWB, do no tighten lids after processing.

I have doubled and tripled the recipe when the fig tree produced enough
figs. I use sugar free gelatin as there is enough sugar in the jam to
cover that. I have also made it with Splenda and added a tablespoon of
lemon juice or a thin sliced lemon into the mix.

Peanut Butter Bread

1-pound loaf

3/4 cup water 2 cups bread flour 2 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 tspn salt 1/3 cup peanut butter 1 tspn yeast (bread machine)

Add ingredients to your bread machine pan in the order given. Use your
choice of creamy or crunchy peanut butter. This recipe can be used with
the regular, rapid, or delayed time bake cycles.

1 1/2 pound loaf

1 1/4 cups water 3 cups bread flour 1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tspn salt 1/2 cup peanut butter 2 tspns yeast

I had a slice of the bread, toasted, with Barb's plum jelly on it for my
noon meal today. Right combination for a peanut butter and jelly
sandwich with having to add the peanut butter.

Enjoy.

About two years ago I ran up on the TAMU pamphlet on canning, just
looked at it again, it's from 1964. That's when my lovely wife belonged
to the home extension club in our area, all female at the time and they
swapped recipes and hints. The extension agent, Miss Dorothy (can't
remember her last name) had been there for years and was still there
when we moved away in 1976. Don't know when she retired finally. They
always had the neatest home preserving booklets and we had a stash of
them. Of course they're badly out of date now but I updated all the
recipes according to the latest scoop on canning.

The peanut butter bread recipe was posted about 1992 on a bread machine
mailing list I was on, don't even remember who posted it but it has been
a favorite dessert bread for years with us. We're of the peanut butter
and jelly sandwich generation, born just before WWII and raised on the
stuff during the war. When my eldest sisters' husband came home from the
war in 1946 (spent more than a year in a military hospital recovering
from wounds incurred the day before VJ Day) all he wanted was a jar of
peanut butter and a jar of grape jelly, said he had been craving that
for four years. He died in 1986 and ate a PB&J sandwich every day until
he died for his lunch.

He would have liked the peanut butter bread I'm sure.
