8. Pour in hot water until the bottom 2 inches of the cans are covered.

10. Check the pot occasionally to make sure that there is enough water.

11. At the end of 1 1/2 hours, check with a skewer, right through the foil.

13. When the loaves are done, take the hot cans out of the pot.

14. Set aside to cool slightly.

15. When you are ready to serve, shake the loaf out onto a breadboard and slice it.

16. Serve warm with butter or cream cheese.

Don't throw away those apple cores. They can be repurposed to create a delightful apple-infused water. Just slice up a few apples, cores included, and add them to a pitcher of ice water. In no time, you'll have a refreshing, flavorful drink to enjoy.
