How to Make Steamed Bread with Apple and Sweet Potato

        My father planted a small apple tree in his field in Japan several years ago, and the tree finally started producing so many small apples. When I visited my parents in Japan a year ago, he showed me his apples with a big smile. He brought so many apples their home. I thought we couldn't eat them up so many apples in a short period of time. That's why I made homemade apple jam with my father's apples. Then, his neighbor gave us some chestnuts one day. I made steamed bread with homemade apple jam, chestnuts and dried raisin for my family while I was staying my parents' home, and it turned out so delicious. A week ago, I bought a lot of apples because they were on sale for $0.99 for 5 lb at my local grocery store here in the U.S. These apples reminded me of steamed breads I made in my parents' home in Japan, so I made apple jam with them and decided to make steamed bread again. I didn't have chestnuts, so I used apple jam and sweet potatoes this time. It was so delicious. Actually, my husband really liked it more than I did. I'm going to share how to make steamed bread with you.
