Boston brown bread is a unique bread.  It obtains a good portion of its taste from molasses.  In colonialboston brown bread - bread making machines
times, New Englanders were always challenged to make bread with limited resources.  Due to the fact that they had more rye flour and cornmeal than wheat flour, the three were generally combined to help conserve.

To the surprise of many, most early New England settlers cooked their meals, not in ovens, but fireplaces.  Bread was placed within a cylindrical container and steamed.  Glass or metal molds were probably used.

Today, most Boston bread is steam baked in a coffee can.  There are several versions of Boston bread.  Some substitute the rye flour with white flour or wheat.                                                                              Creative Commons License photo credit: kthread
