      Title: Perfect white bread
 Categories: Breads
      Yield: 6 Servings
    1/2 c  Warm Water
      1 ts Sugar
    1/4 ts Ginger
      2 pk Active or Dry Yeast
    1/3 c  Sugar
  2 1/2 c  Warm water
      4 c  Flour
    3/4 c  Skimmed Milk Powder
      3 c  Warm Water
      5 ts Salt
    1/2 c  Soft Lard
      8 c  Flour (for the Dough)
      2 c  Flour (for kneading)
  Combine the first 4 ingredients and let stand in a warm place until
  bubbling nicely. In a large bowl, stir together 1/3 cup Sugar, 2 1/2
  cups Water, 4 cups flour, and 3/4 cup dried skim milk. Stir in the
  yeast mixture, beating well. Cover the bowl and let stand in a warm
  place until the sponge is well risen and bubbly. Add 3 cups warm
  water, 5 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 cup lard and beat well. Stir in 6 to
  8 cups flour, mixing until the dough clears the bowl. Spread the
  remaining 2 cups of flour on a pastry board, turn out the dough and
  knead well, using a little additional flour if necessary to make it
  smooth and satiny. Return to the bowl, dust top of dough with flour,
  cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place for about 30
  minutes. Turn out. Knead thoroughly, using only enough flour to keep
  dough from sticking. Divide into 6 even portions. Shape into loaves.
  Place in greased pans. Brush tops of loaves with soft lard and allow
  to rise again until double in bulk. Bake in PREHEATED oven for 45
  minutes; the first 20 minutes at 425 F.; then reduce heat to 350 F.
  for the rest of the baking period. If a very soft crust is desired,
  brush top of loaves with melted lard or butter as soon as they are
  removed from the oven and allow to stand for about 5 minutes before
  removing from the pans. This recipe makes 6 medium size loaves.
