Ingredients:  
2 packages yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
3 cups warm water
1/3 cup molasses

Directions:
Directions:
Combine yeast, sugar and 1 cup warm water and let stand until the yeast is bubbly and dissolved. Mix in a separate bowl with wooden spoon (carved by Russ) 2 cups warm water, molasses, honey, brown sugar, salt, caraway, anise, fennel and rye flour. Beat mixture well. Add yeast mixture and melted shortening and the white flour. Knead well on floured board at least 10 minutes (dough will be sticky). Place in buttered bowl to rise, cover lightly with dish towel (at least one hour) until double in bulk. Punch down and allow to rise a second time (this step is optional - bread will be good if it rises only once) Punch down and shape into 3 medium loaves and let rise in lightly buttered pans until the dough is 1" over the top of pan - at least one hour. Bake at 350 for one hour - remove from pans and butter tops.
