I may not be a chef but I have made plenty of bread in the past, and I’ll be the first to admit that this recipe confuses me.




Take the water off of the potatoes
and make a batter with flour
put in a pinch of salt.
melt yeast and put in
the batter set away to raise
all night.
in the morning
make a batter of a pt of flour
mixed with Milk and a little more
salt, a large tablespoon of melted lard.
Pour into the yeast and
then set away to raise
for an hour.
Then take it and stiffen it
and put in bread pans and
let it raise again until
the top cracks. then put
in a moderate oven for
about 15 minutes then turn
up fire and let it
back 30 minutes more.
