Grandma H's Original Homemade Bread Recipe

2 and 1/2 Quarts lukewarm Water

1 Large Cup Sugar

1 and 1/2 Tb Crisco

2 Tb Salt

1 Yeast Cake

10 lb. Flour

Mix until real stiff. Round up nice and grease with Crisco. let raise 1 hour. Put in tins and grease tops again. Let raise 1 hour in tins. Make 45 minutes at 350 to 375 degrees.

NOTE: Grandma had 4 sons and one daughter. I imagine the boys especially ate a lot of bread. Can you imagine 10 cups of water in that recipe? I suppose this was also her mother's bread recipe.
I will also give you her revised recipe she gave me when I was 15 years old and just learning how to make bread.
