1/4 t Salt

1 t Cinnamon
1 lb Raisins, white

1/4 t Nutmeg

Cream together butter, sugar and eggs in one bowl. In another bowl, mix the dry ingredients together (flour, salt, soda and seasonings). Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture half at a time, alternating it with the applesauce. Pick all the black gumdrops out and eat them or throw them away. Add the nuts, raisins, coconut and remaining gumdrops; blend well.
Line 2 large loaf pans or 5 small loaf pans with wax paper! (Grease won't work). Fill pans about 2/3 full. Bake at 300 degrees F. for about 2 hours. Let cool for about 15 minutes before you try to remove the loaves from the pan. They should just fall right out when turned upside down, then peel off the wax paper.
