10 quart buckets of hot water
24 pounds grease
Put grease, lye, and 2 buckets of hot water in a drum cut in half. Boil until grease is dissolved, add the rest of the water. Stir after each bucket is added. It will go thick and string from stirring stick. Put half in a no. 3 tub rinsed with cooled water. when hard, about 2 days, cut and dry. Stores well.
Note: I doubt anyone will use this, but thought it was a good reminder of how it used to be.
