Civil War Cookin':
Carolina Rice and Wheat Bread


1 lb. rice
2 qts. water
4 lb. flour
2-3 packets or cakes yeast

Simmer one pound of rice in two quarts of water until it is quite soft; when it is cool enough, mix it well with four pounds of flour, yeast and salt as for other bread; of yeast, four large spoonfuls. Let is rise before the fire. Some of the flour should be reserved to make the loaves. If the rice swell greatly, and require more water, add as much as you think proper.

From The Carolina Housewife by Sarah Rutledge, 1847.
