Anadama Bread

½ cup cornmeal
2 tbl. shortening
½ cup molasses
3 tsp. salt
2 cups boiling water
2 tbl. dry yeast
About 6 cups of flour

Combine the first four ingredients, pour boiling water over, stir and let stand until lukewarm. Add yeast that has been softened in ¼ cup warm water, stir until well blended. Add flour to make a stiff dough, knead lightly, and let rise in a greased bowl until double. Knead and divide dough into two parts, form into loaves and place each in a greased pan. Let rise until double and bake at 375° for 45 to 60 minutes. Remove from pans and cool on rack.
