Harvest Bread

The cooler temperatures are moving in and the desire to bake bread battles against the preservation of the harvest. This is an easy, yet delicious bread. Toasted for breakfast with a nice slather of butter, or simply cut and enjoyed with your coffee or tea. This bread is a keeper. The dried fruit can be what is listed or add your favorites. The honey and fruit make it sweet, but not overly sweet.
