How To Make hobo pineapple bread

  • 1
    In a large pot boil the water and add the raisins and baking soda. Let sit overnight in refrigerator. The raisins will be very plump the next day. If you don't want to let it sit overnight you can put it in the refrig for a few hours. I have always used the overnight method.
