Bread Native amer

Ingredients:

  • 1 pk Active dry yeast (1/4 oz)
  • 1/4 c Lukewarm water
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 3 tb Vegetable shortening, melted
  • 1 c Cold water
  • 4 1/2 c All purpose flour

Directions:

In a large bowl, soften the yeast in the lukewarm water. Mix the salt, 2 tablespoons of the shortening, and the cold water together and add to the yeast mixture.
 
Sift in the flour gradually, beating well after each addition for a smooth consistency. You will probably have to knead in the final cup of flour.
 
Shape the dough into a ball, brish lightly with the remaining shortening, and cover with a dry cloth. Set the bowl in a warm place until doubled in bulk, anout 1 hour.
 
Punch the dough down and, on a floured board, knead about 5 minutes. Shape into 2 round loaves on a well greased baking sheet. Cover with a dry cloth and set to rise another 45 minutes.
 
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Bake the loaves on a cookie sheet 50 minutes, until they are light brown and sound hollow when tapped. *****
 
This is an adaptation of the traditional recipe that is still being used by almost every Native American family. Posted to MM-Recipes Digest by "Rfm" <Robert-Miles@usa.net> on May 25, 98
