"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
2 pkg. dry yeast 1/2 c. warm water 2 c. hot water 1/2 c. sugar 3 T. butter (don't substitute) 3 tsp. salt 6 to 6 1/2 c. flour (approx.)
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Heat 2 cups water and pour over the sugar and butter. Add 2 cups flour, beating as hard as possible after each addition. When mixture is warm, NOT hot, add to dissolved yeast. Add salt to remaining flour and add to mixture. Knead well and then place in greased bowl and let rise until double. Shape into rolls or buns, let rise again until double and then bake at 375º for about 18-20 minutes.
