SWEDISH BROWN BREAD

I pretty much wanted to add this recipe here so i can have easy reference to it at a later date.

1 cup quick oats
2 cups boiling water
2 tablespoons shortening (rounded)
2 cakes yeast dissolved in lukewarm water
7-8 cups flour (enough to make very stiff dough)
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup sorghum molasses
1/2 cup sugar
Pour boiling water over oats, shortening, salt, sorghum, and sugar. When lukewarm, add part of flour mix. Then add the dissolved yeast, then more flour. Knead in thoroughly the remaining flour until the dough is stiff, but not sticky enough to stick to board. let rise until doubled in bulk, put in two large loaf pans, and grease tops. Cover and let stand until double again. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes.
