DATE NUT BREAD

4 cup dates, cut up into large pieces
2 cup nuts, coarsely broken
2 cup boiling water
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
2 eggs, room temperature
4 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
2/3 cup hot water

Put dates and nuts into a large bowl. Pour the boiling water over
them, stir and set aside while you mix the batter. Cream the
shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and beat
hard. Sift the flour and salt together. Add baking soda to the
date and nut mixture. Stir the flour mixture into the creamed
mixture alternately with the dates and nuts - starting and ending
with flour. Stir in the 2/3 cup hot water and mix gently but
thoroughly. Pour into four or five small (3 x 6 inch) or three
medium (4 x 8 inch) loaf pans which have been well greased and
floured. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 45 minutes (until toothpick
comes out dry). Cool in pans for about 10 minutes, then turn out
and cool completely. Wrap in plastic wrap. Best if allowed to
age at least overnight; this bread keeps well.
