I enjoy baking sweet, specialty breads. I buy or harvest banana, pumpkin, peach, strawberry, apple sauce, mango, papaya, pineapple, zucchini or other fruits and suitable vegetables when they are in season to keep costs low. After baking, I wrap in white freezer paper, label them and freeze them to be used as gifts for our neighbors throughout the year. They're a welcome treat as most households in my area cook with wood or have an oven that cannot reach the heat needed for baking bread.
