Fry Bread

We're nearing the end of our Apache block, but we made Fry Bread a couple of weeks ago. We used 5 cups of lard to fry those babies. But, oh, we're they worth it. Our whole house smelled like a donut shop for days.

A little powdered sugar, a little honey... think sopapilla, except solid.

Hmm... I think Kirven must have dusted that one. Here's the recipe I used (watch out, it uses way too much water!): Apache Fry Bread
The recipe makes a lot---more than any one gut can take! Be prepared to send the kids out to all the neighbors to pawn them off.

  1. Cool, thanks for the link, we'll have to do this when we do Stalking Wolf -- although there's no way I'm using 5 lbs of lard for anything! Will have to find a way around that....many we can make a mini-batch and fry them in crisco....

  2. No, no! You have to use lard! LOL Think of it this way: you never use lard. So, what the heck? It makes the same mess as Crisco anyway. This was Kirven's favorite activity, by the way.
