2-3 pkgs of yeast
15 cups flour
¾ cup sugar
½ tablespoon salt
1/2 c shortening

Directions:
Peel and cube a small potato. Place in two cups of water and boil until tender. Mash down the potato and cool until luke warm. Add 2 – 3 pkgs of yeast and put aside until yeast is activated. (Be sure the liquid is not too hot and not too cold. If it is too hot it will kill the yeast and if it is too cold, it will not rise soon enough).

Put in a large bowl the following:
15 cups flour
¾ cup sugar
½ tablespoon salt

Then mix in a handful (about ½ cup) shortening until it is blended into the flour mixture (similar to making a pie crust).

By now the yeast should be bubbly and will be ready to use. Pour it into the flour mixture and mix well. Add enough more water to make the flour sort of syrupy (about two more cups). Then begin to add more flour—one cup at a time and mixing and kneading in between until the dough is soft (sort of like a baby’s bottom) and easy to handle. (After the dough is easier to handle, put it out on the counter to knead and then when it is finished, place back into a greased bowl to rise.) Let it rise to the top of the bowl and push back down again. When it rises the second time, you can shape it into rolls or into loaves.

Cook rolls 25 to 35 minutes at 375 degrees

Cook loaves of bread 45 to 50 minutes at 350.

Butter the tops when they are finished cooking.

from Grandma Ione Gates. This is the one thing I still remember my Grandma Gates making. My dad has always liked the burned ones! Grandma always thought my dad was making fun of her.
