Apple Bread

I have been working hard to go through all the apples I picked on Monday. Haven’t made much of a dent yet, but then I haven’t started canning. I did make an apple bread I really like. It is not too sweet and studded with raisins and nuts. I actually used a combination of raisins, dried cranberries and pecans. It is a lovely option for breakfast and a nice gift. Freezes great- not there are ever any leftovers over here.
