Ingredients:

1/2 cup raisins

1/3 cup dark rum

2 cups all-purpose flour, plus 2 teaspoons for dusting the pan

2 cups whole wheat flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped

1/2 cup pecans, toasted and roughly chopped

1 1/2 cups plain yogurt

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon milk

3/4 teaspoon anise seeds (optional) (Sesame seeds or rolled oats are nice substitutes, if you're not an anise lover.)

Equipment:

sauce pan

oven

baking paper

baking sheet

mixing bowl

whisk

bowl

knife

toothpicks

wire rack

Cooking instruction summary:

Combine the rum and raisins in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 30 seconds, then remove from heat. Cover and allow the raisins to macerate for at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight. When youre ready to bake the bread, preheat the oven to 375F. Coat a baking sheet with olive oil and lightly dust it with flour, or line it with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl whisk together the flours, baking soda, salt, and rosemary. Stir in the toasted pecans. In a separate bowl combine the raisins with the rum, the yogurt, and honey. Add the wet ingredients to the dry. Mix until the dough is too stiff to stir. Use your hands to bring it together in the bowl. Add additional yogurt one teaspoon at a time if its too dry. You want a stiff, slightly tacky ball. Turn dough onto a lightly floured board and shape into a round loaf. (Dont over-knead the dough. Too much kneading will produce a tough bread.). Transfer the loaf to the prepared baking sheet. Use a sharp knife to make deep slashes across the top of the loaf, 4-6 cuts about half way through. Brush the top with milk. Sprinkle with seeds or oats if using. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. When you tap the loaf, it will sound hollow. Cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature with a generous slather of butter.

Food Joke

What to do when your dinner is interrupted: - Ask them if they've got beer - Start speaking in tongues - Tell them that person doesn't live there anymore. Give them the number of an adult service and tell them that it is her/his new number - Tell them that you're not there right now - Ask them if they accept coupons - Start selling them something else - If someone calls soliciting donations, tell them you're poor and ask for money instead - Start preaching your religion to them - Pretend you're a recording and say "The number you have reached is not in service. Please check the number and dial again, or talk to your operator for assistance. Recording A4." Extra points for imitating the 3 rising tones at the beginning. - Try to hypnotise the telemarketer - Play a recording of a busy signal - Put on some really annoying music and put the phone up to the stereo. - Ask the telemarketer if he/she is single. Then try hitting on him/her. Be sure to mention your various medical problems, your fascination with odd smells and your shrine to the Lawrence Welk Show. - Use one of those voice changers to disguise your voice - Rap all your replies to the telemarketer's questions, especially if you're white. - Ask the TM if he/she minds if you talk to him/her on the toilet. Then take a plastic Heinz ketchup bottle and squeeze out ketchup repeatedly - Speak in ragga chant - Try to rhyme with everything the telemarketer says - Tell the TM that the person he/she is trying to reach is a victim of black magic and has been turned into a poodle. - Tell the TM that the person s/he is trying to reach has passed on, and that you're the ghost of him/her. - Sell them on the "value of high colonics". Explain your "dedication to good health" in your most convincing, passionate voice.
