Preheat your oven to 350. Sift together the flour, salt, sugar, &
baking soda. In a separate bowl, combine the pumpkin, oil,
eggs, water, & spices. Pour into the bowl w/ dry ingredients &
mix just until all are combined - don't stir too much! Stir in the
nuts, if you're using them. Pour into
a well-buttered 9x5x3-in. loaf pan, bake 50-60 minutes until
done in the middle. Remove from pan, cool on a rack.
Keep wrapped in the refrigerator.
