Pour one pint of boiling sweet milk over three heaping tablespoonsful of corn meal. Beat well and set in a warm place all night. On the morning add to the mixture a pint of warm milk or water, a teaspoonful of sugar, a pint of flour. Beat well and set in a warm place for aobut two hours or until it looks spongy. Then add one teaspoonful of salt, one tablespoonful of lard and enough flour to make a soft dough. Work fifteen minutes, knead into loaves, let them rise one or two hours, and then bake an hour or longer.
