1 3/4 cups milk scalded

1/4 cup molasses
2 tablespoons shortening
4 teaspoons salt
5 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cups white flour (for kneading)


Add yeast to the water and allow it to stand for 5 minutes. Add sugar, molasses, shortening and salt to the scalded milk and stir to blend. Cool to lukewarm, then add yeast and whole wheat flour. Stir until well mixed, then pour out onto a lightly floured board and knead until smooth and elastic.
