air find the batter a good stage for development. Salt rising bread needs
more heat while fermenting and a much longer time to bake. Here is a good

Stir 2 Tbsp. of corn meal into 1/2 pint of water heated to 130 F. Add 1/2
tsp. of salt and mix very well. Put this in a jar or crock, cover and place
it in a pan of water at 160 F. Keep overnight in a warm place.

In the morning, warm 1 quart of milk; add 1 tsp. salt and enough warm flour
to make a heavy batter. Gradually add the overnight corn meal and beat well
for a few moments. Cover and keep in a warm place about 2 hours.

Gradually add flour and beat mix until it becomes a very soft dough. Turn
out on a floured board and knead until it is elastically smooth. Divide
equally into four portions, mold into loaves, and place each in a greased
bread pan. Cover with a clean cloth and keep in a warm place for 1/2 hour.
Bake in a 350 F. oven for 1 hour.
