Directions
  1.  In a small bowl, dissolved the yeast in ½ cup warm water. 
  2. Set aside for about 5 min 
  3. In large bowl, combine the lard, sugar, salt and the remaining 2 cups of water. 
  4. Add the yeast mixture and stir to combine. 
  5. Add the flour, ½ cup at a time, mixing until the dough is elastic and doesn’t stick to the sides of the bowl 
  6. Cover the bowl loosely with plastic wrap or a damp cloth and let the dough rise until double in size, about 1 ½ hours in a warm, draft free place.
  7.  Punch the dough down and form it into two loaves with your hands. 
  8.  Place each half into a greased 5x9 in loaf pan. (So making 2 loaves of bread) 
  9. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise again until the dough is level with the loaf pan, about an hour. 
  10.  Preheat oven to 325 F Bake bread for about 45 min. 
  11.  The bread will sound hollow when tapped. 
  12.  After removing bread from the oven, brush with butter or margarine for a softer crust. 
  13. Remove the bread from the pans and cool on a wire rack. 
  14.  After completely cool, it can be stored in a sealed bag and frozen for up to 6 months. 
  15. If bread is stored in a sealed plastic bag at room temperature, it should be consumed within 4 days.
