Scald milk. Remove from heat and add shortening. Pour in large bowl, adding molasses and salt. Cool to lukewarm. Meanwhile, dissolve yeast in 1 cup warm water. Let stand 3 to 5 minutes. Stir yeast and add to milk mixture. Blend in about 100 strokes by hand. Add more flour a little at a time, until dough forms a ball that can be kneaded. Turn out on floured board and knead about 5 minutes or until dough is smooth and firm. Place in greased bowl and turn once to grease all sides. Cover bowl and let dough rise about 1 hour. Punch down dough and turn out on board. Divide into two equal parts. Shape each part into a loaf and place in greased loaf pan. Cover and let rise about 45 to 60 minutes. Bake at 375 for 35 - 45 minutes.
