Mix boiling water with raisins, butter and baking soda. Cool. Mix in sugar, flour and cream of tartar and pour evenly into ungreased cans.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is a family favorite I have been making since I was a young bride. I got the recipe from my mother, who made it for me since I was a small child, and I just can't get enough of it. I give this to my family, friends and neighbors for Christmas every year now. If you want an easy recipe with big taste, this is the Boston Brown Bread for you.
