"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Mix the shortening, salt, and sugar in a large bowl, add the hot milk and 1 cup hot water, let cool to lukewarm. In a small bowl mix the yeast with 1/4 cup warm water and let it stand for 5 minutes to dissolve. Add the dissolved yeast and 3 cups of the flour to the first mixture and beat until well blended. Add 2 more cups of flour, mix and turn out onto a lightly floured board. Knead for a minute or two and then let rest for 10 minutes. Add just enough of the remaining flour so that the dough is not sticky, resume kneading until the dough is smooth and elastic. Put the dough in a large, greased bowl, cover and let rise in a warm spot until double in bulk. Punch down and shape into two loaves. Place in greased loaf pans, cover and let double in bulk again. Preheat oven to 425. Bake bread for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 375 and bake for 30 minutes more. Remove from pans and cool on racks.
