https://www.pinterest.com/TIASAntiques/march-birthstone-aquamarine-or-bloodstone/

Aquamarine is derived from Latin word aqua, meaning water, and marina, meaning the sea. Was believed to protect sailors, as well as to guarantee a safe voyage. The serene color of aquamarine is said to cool the temper, allowing the wearer to remain calm and levelheaded. The 2nd birthstone for March is bloodstone, dark-green jasper flecked with vivid red spots of iron oxide. This ancient stone was used by Babylonians to make seals and amulets.

Nick S. from Australia sent us these pictures and wants to know if anyone can tell him what it was used for: "It's an Australian metal pressing tool I'm told. My grandparents have both passed. As the same with my parents so I literally have no information about it. It's about 1.7m tall, have you ever seen anything like it? Inbetween the sort of clamp I can interchange the fittings for different size metal or different shape press I assume." Any ideas out there?

Last week Sharon B requested a recipe for Pumpkin Bread baked in coffee cans. We have a bunch to offer! Thanks to everyone who submitted their recipes!

From James H:
Sharon B was looking for a Pumpkin Bread recopied. I can remember my Mom and Grandmother using to coffee cans for breads and steamed puddings, they always seemed so good! The recipe that I found was one that was from a Country Folk Art Magazine (Oct.1992) that sounds like it would be similar to what Sharon was looking for. I am sure that it could be made in coffee cans if you can find one these days

Pumpkin Date Bread

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup pumpkin
1/3 cup water
1 2/3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup dates, cut up
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

In large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in pumpkin and water.

Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and cloves. Add dry ingredients to pumpkin mixture and stir just until moistened. Gently add dates and walnuts.

Pour into greased and floured or parchment- lined 9x5x3 loaf pan. Bake in preheated 350° oven 60-70 minutes until inserted wooden pick comes out clean. Remove from pan and cool on rack. Makes 1 loaf.

From Sue N:

Here is one I found by googling. Below find my coffee can bread that I used to make in the 1970's. Note that both recipes use (2) 16-oz. metal coffee cans. Never had a problem getting the bread out of the ridged cans like one reader mentions.

PUMPKIN BREAD IN A COFFEE CAN

3/4 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
3/4 c. granulated sugar
1 tsp. packed light brown sugar
1/3 c. vegetable oil, melted butter
2 lg. eggs
1/2 tsp. black walnut extract (optional)
1 c. canned solid-pack pumpkin
1 c. walnut pieces, chopped coarse

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease and flour two 1 pound coffee cans. Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. Beat sugars, oil, eggs and extract in a large bowl with a wooden spoon until well blended. Add flour mixture alternately with pumpkin in 3 additions, blending well after each. Stir in nuts. Spoon evenly into prepared cans filling them half full. Bake 50 to 60 minutes until pick inserted in center of bread comes out clean. Cool in cans on rack 10 minutes. Run a thin knife or spatula around can sides to loosen. Remove breads; cool top sides up on wire rack. Makes 2 loaves.

Note: If you don't have coffee cans, you can bake batter in 1 greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch loaf pan for about 1 hour.

COFFEE CAN BREAD / SUE N

4 cups flour
1 pkg. (envelope) yeast
2 eggs
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 c. ground almonds
1/2 cup chopped raisins

Mix 2 cups flour with yeast. Stir water, milk, butter, sugar, and salt over low heat until butter melts. Cool for about 5 minutes; add to flour and yeast mixture. Add remaining flour, nuts, raisins, and eggs. Dough will be stiff. Knead on floured board until dough is smooth and elastic and raisins are well-distributed. Coat inside of each coffee can with small amount of oil. Divide dough in half; put half in each can. Cover cans with plastic tops. Let rise in warm place until dough reaches 1 inch from top. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes until top sounds hollow when tapped, and test comes out clean.

I'm sure you'll get a lot of recipes for the pumpkin bread requested in the 3/2 newsletter; here's my mother's version from the 1950/1960s.

Pumpkin Bread

3 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda

Mix dry ingredients.

Add:
1 cup cooking oil
1 can pumpkin (Not the pie filling, but the plain pumpkin)
2/3 cup water

Add 4 eggs, one at a time and beat well after adding each egg.

Add:
1 cup chopped dates (or raisins, or dried cranberries)
1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, etc)

Makes 4 coffee cans, filled up to the 3rd ring; bake about 1 hour 15 minutes, at 350 degrees.

From Marti M:
I don't know if this is the same version or not but here you go:

Pumpkin Bread
3 1/2 cup flour 1 cup oil
1 1/2 tsp salt 4 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon 2/3 cup water
1 tsp nutmeg 2 cups pumpkin
2 tsp baking soda 1 cup chopped walnuts
3 cup sugar

Sift the first 5 ingredients together and set aside.
Mix sugar and oil then add eggs and beat until smooth.
Add the sifted dry ingredients, water, pumpkin and walnuts.
Grease 4 one pound coffee tins. Pour the batter (divided
equally) into the 4 tins. Bake at 350 for 1 1/2 hours.
Allow to cool in tins.

Enjoy!

From John M:

Mary's "cake in a can" sounds a little like "Hobo Bread". This was also made in cans
and is sold at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI. Hobo Bread is more of a molasses
flavored bread but it might give you some hints on how to make it.

From Kathleen:
Hello Tias,

Sharon B had requested this recipe and we are happy to share. My mother, Anna Mae, still makes this Pumpkin Bread in the coffee cans! We all live in Houston, TX now, but she had gotten this recipe about 45 years ago from a co-worker, Mary, in So Hackensack, NJ. Sometime we put a little dollop of butter or cream cheese on a slice cut, but they are just delicious without the extras.
With that said ~ here is the recipe...

4 cups of flour, sifted 1 can pumpkin filling for 9" pie
3 cups of sugar 1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup oil 4 eggs
2/3 cup cold water 2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. each of cinnamon, nutmeg,
allspice, ground cloves, baking powder
(4) I lb. coffee cans
Nuts chopped (you choose)

Dr. Sharon B sent this:
Linda's request for the Helms Bakery recipes brought back such fond memories for me. Almost sixty years ago, I would save my babysitting money for the day when the Helms truck appeared. I would scurry out to greet the friendly delivery man as he opened the back doors on the truck. The yummy aromas that enveloped me still linger. . .sheer wonderfulness. My favorite treat was the Helms chocolate macaroon. I have not found a recipe for the macaroons, but here are the original Helms recipes for the brownies and blondies that Linda requested.

Helms Bakery Brownies
Ingredients
3/4 Cup (1-1/2 Sticks) Margarine, Cut in Chunks
3 Ounces Unsweetened Chocolate
1 1/3 Cups Sugar
2 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup Chopped and Lightly Toasted Walnuts
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
2. Melt margarine and chocolate together in medium saucepan. Blend in sugar, eggs, vanilla, flour and nuts.
3. Pour into prepared pan. Bake until it is crispy at the edges and feels fairly firm in the center, about 30-40 minutes. Cool 30 minutes before cutting.

Butter Cream Brownie Frosting
Ingredients
3 Tablespoons Butter, Softened
3 Tablespoons Choclatique Red (Rouge) Cocoa Powder (Unsweetened)
1 Tablespoon Light Corn Syrup or Honey
1/2 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1 Cup Confectioner’s Sugar
1 to 2 Tablespoons Milk
Directions:
1. Cream butter, cocoa, corn syrup and vanilla in small mixer bowl.
2. Add confectioner’s sugar and milk; beat to spreading consistency. Spread on cooled brownies. Makes about cup of frosting—enough to frost 12 brownies.

Helms Bakery Blondies
Ingredients
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons (1 stick) melted butter
2/3 cup (packed) light brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped, toasted walnuts or pecans
Directions:
Mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook an addition 3 to 4 minutes, stirring constantly, until the butter has turned a light golden brown. Remove from heat and beat in the brown and white sugars. Let cool to room temperature. Stir in the egg and yolk, then the corn syrup and vanilla. Stir in the pecans, then fold in the flour mixture. Scrape batter into a generously greased 8-by-8-inch pan, spreading to the edges. Bake about 30 minutes at 350 degrees, until top is golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on rack and cut into bars. Dust with confectioners sugar. Makes 12 2-by-2-inch brownies.
