Pawpaw Bread is different and fun to make. Go pawpaw picking in the woods with your kids in the fall. You can show them how early American settlers gathered food and prepared it from scratch.

Pawpaw Bread is good and not hard to make at all. Its a fun adventure that is almost free. And its great family fun.
