      Thanks so much. My mother was born and raised in Hawaii and this recipe was the best I've found since I was enjoying a huge slab of it as I watched the sunrise in Hilo Bay 30 years ago.

      I remember making bread with my grandmother and she used the potato to bloom the yeast. Her recipe was in pounds of flour and scoops of shortening and it made 60 buns. Thanks for the memories
