   together flour, nuts, salt & grated lemon rind on piece of waxed paper.
   Remove lemon strips from sugar; dis- card. Beat together sugar and butter
   in large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, one at a time, beating
   well after each addition. Stir together buttermilk and baking soda in small
   bowl until well mixed. Stir in reserved 1/4 c. lemon juice. Mix into butter
   mixture.  Gently stir in flour mixture just until ingredients are blended.
   Turn into prepared pan. Bake for 70-80 minutes or until wooden pick

   Ten minutes before bread is baked, combine sugar, lemon juice and water in
   small saucepan.  Bring to boil, stirring occasionally. Lower heat; simmer 4
   minutes.  When bread is baked, immediately poke holes all over top with
   wooden skewer. Slowly spoon glaze over top of bread. Let stand in pan 10
   minutes. Loosen sides; carefully turn bread out onto wire rack. Cool
   completely, right side up, before slicing. Serve with mock clotted cream,
   if you wish. -----Olga Posted on PRODIGY, 2/92; formatted by Elaine Radis;
