Inga’s Buns

Soak 1 package of dry yeast in 1/2 cup lukewarm water with 2 teaspoons sugar. Melt 3/4 cup lard. Add 2 cups potato water, 2 1/2 cups plain water, 3/4 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons salt. Mix in some flour, then the yeast. Add flour to knead well. Let dough rise about 2 hours. Knead down and let rise again. Make into buns and bake. Use from 10 to 11 cups of flour, in all

This is an old recipe of 60 years ago that I have from my mother’s recipes. She, in turn, received it from a dear neighbor lady.
