       3 c  Raisins 
       3 c  Water 
     1/4 c  Shortening 
   5 1/2 c  Unbleached Flour; Sifted

       4 ts Baking Soda 
       2 ts Salt 
       2 ea Eggs; Lg, Slightly Beaten 
       1 c  Walnuts; Chopped 
   Combine the raisins and water in a 3-quart saucepan and bring to a boil.
   Boil, uncovered, for 5 minutes, then remove from the heat and add the
   shortening.  Cool to lukewarm.  Sift the flour, sugar, baking soda and
   salt together into a mixing bowl and add the eggs, walnuts and raisin
   mixture.  Stir until just moistened.  Spoon the batter into 6 greased
   (1-lb) vegetable cans.  Bake in a preheated 350 degree F. oven for 1 hour
   or until a cake tester or wooden pick inserted in the center of each loaf
   comes out clean.  Cover with aluminum foil for the last 15 minutes of
   baking to prevent overbrowning.  Cool in the cans for 10 minutes before
   turning out onto wire racks to cool to room temperature.
