Posted in response to a request, this recipe comes from "Preserving Our Italian Heritage", a cookbook from The Sons of Italy Florida Foundation. The recipe was submitted by a man who, as a 10 year old boy, helped his mother knead and bake 50 lbs. of flour twice each week! He bakes the loaves on marble slabs that fit his oven and says "it bakes golden brown with a full crispy crust just like an old fashioned stone oven". Prep time does not include rising time.
