Step 2: Getting Started:


Peel and cook the potatoes until soft drain and mash reserving 1/2 cup of the coking liquid.

In a medium bowl add the 1/2 cup of  potato liquid (cooled to between 105-107F.) to three packets of Active Dry Yeast- mix well.

Set this bowl aside for 10-15 minute until the mixture gets foamy.

 Into a large bowl add  the "working" yeast/potato water to:

1/2 cup flour

 1/2 sugar

  1 cup of coled mashed potatoes

  1 Tablespoon of ground Ginger


 Set the bowl aside loosely covered with a kitchen towel until the mixture has risen and is bubbly. The time it takes for this step depends on the warmth of the room.
