4 cups flour

1 1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

3/4 cup raisins

2 cups buttermilk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients with a whisk. Using a spatula stir in the raisins and then the buttermilk. Stir until combined. With floured hands dump the dough onto the lined baking sheet and pat into a 8 inch round. With a sharp knife cut a large 1/4 inch X across the top. Bake for about 45 minutes or until x has spread open and bread is golden brown. Remove from oven and brush top with butter. Using a lightly damp tea towel wrap the hot loaf up and place on rack for 8 hours.
