In a large mixing bowl blend together buttermilk and molasses. Stir in raisins.

(Or, fill four 16-ounce cans.) Cover cans tightly with foil; place on a rack set in a large Dutch oven. Pour boiling water into Dutch to a depth of 1 inch. Cover and simmer over low heat, steaming bread till done, 2-1/2 to 3 hours. Add more boiling water as needed. Remove bread from cans and cool on a rack. Makes 3 or 4 loaves.
