Directions:
Place 1 quart of the warm water in a bowl, add the sugar and yeast, and stir to dissolve. In a very large container place the remaining water, honey, and salt. Add the dissolved yeast and start adding the flour one cup at a time until you have a stiff dough, knead until the dough is elastic and smooth. Place back into a greased container large enough to allow it to rise. Let dough rise until double in bulk punch down and allow it to rise again and punch down the second time. Make out into loaves and let rise again until they are above the edge of the pan. Bake in a 350 oven for about 35-40 minutes or until they sound hollow when tapped. Remove from oven and turn upside down on a cooling rack.

Mom, used to make this in an old aluminum dish pan. It was always hanging on the back porch. I don't think she used it for any thing else.
