Yields 8 loaves
4 T yeast
1 c sorghum
8 c water
4-5 c milled flour
1 c oil
3-4 T salt
Mix yeast, sorghum, warm water and let it sit 5-10 minutes.
Add enough flour to make a pudding consistency.
Let sit 30 minutes, until spongey.
Add oil and salt plus more flour... Enough to make stirring extremely difficult.
Knead in more flour until proper consistency.
Let rise in an oiled bowl 1 hour.
Punch down, let rise again.
Split into 8 balls, knead each, and put in oiled loaf pans. Let rise 30 minutes.
Bake at 350 degrees 1 hour.

Can you hear that? That's my theme music. I don't know where it comes from. Check under this tiny ad:
