BREAD. MRS. BELLE BLAND.
FOR FOUR LOAVES OF BREAD.–Peel five good-sized potatoes; boil until
soft, and mash through a colander; then two tablespoonfuls of sugar,
one of salt; and five pints of water. When about cold, add one-half
medium-sized cakes of yeast, which have been well soaked. Let this
stand in a warm place twenty-four hours. In the morning, mix stiff;
knead well; let it rise until light; mold into loaves, and when raised
again, bake in a moderately hot oven one hour.
