Augason Farms Shortening Powder is a boon for creating some of the best bakery items anywhere. The ease with which it blends into other dry ingredients makes mixing a dream, and there’s no need to hydrate it first. Keep it on hand to add to any baking recipe calling for shortening for that light, fluffy and flakey texture people love—especially in pie crusts. It does not require any refrigeration and has a much longer shelf life than ordinary shortening, which can quickly go rancid. These virtues make Augason Farms Shortening Powder ideal for everyday use as well as emergency food storage.

  • 10 year shelf life*
  • 178 servings
  • 2 lb 12 oz, institutional size (#10) can
  • No refrigeration needed
  • Easy to prepare, just add to dry ingredients when baking
  • For emergency food storage, camping or everyday use

* Sealed/Opened to 1 year. Best when stored in a cool dry place at temperatures between 55˚F and 70˚F (ideal humidity 15%).

Home Style White Bread
8 1/2 cups Augason Farms Enriched Bleached Flour
2 1/2 cups lukewarm water
4 (1/4 ounce) packages dry or compressed yeast
1 teaspoon Augason Farms Iodized Salt
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons Augason Farms Shortening Powder
4 teaspoons sugar

Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water with a pinch of sugar, sit until yeast foams.  Stir in remaining warm water and shortening powder.  Whisk dry ingredients together.  Add half the flour to yeast mixture, mix.  Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface.  Knead dough until smooth and elastic.  Place dough in a greased bowl, turning to grease the surface.  Cover with a clean, damp cloth and let rise until doubled.  Punch dough down and cut into 4 equal pieces.  Form each piece into a smooth loaf shape, tucking under ends and positioning seams at the bottom.  Place into oiled loaf pans, lightly dusted with flour.  Allow dough to rise until doubled, about 1 hour.  Bake at 375˚F for about 35 minutes.  After 5 minutes, remove loaves from pans, cool on wire rack.  Yield: 4 loaves.
