I suppose the title of this post is deceptive – “How To Oven Can Quick Breads” – because it’s really baking bread in a jar for storage. There’s no canning process which takes place. We call it oven canned quick bread because when the bread is taken from the oven we immediately place a lid on it to seal the jar.
I had never heard of oven canning quick breads before this year. I was visiting my old-timer friend Helen and she offered me some of her zucchini bread which she had oven canned. It was moist and delicious after a year of being in the jar. I won’t embarrass her by sharing her age is 73 and she’s done this since she was a girl.
She has taken me under her wing since we moved to the panhandle of Idaho from the deep south. She’s teaching me how to garden, can and many other things about life in these altitudes and temperatures. How to oven can quick breads is the latest thing she’s taught me.
