Honey Oatmeal Bread

This is Missy's recipe.  She is a wonderful baker!

4 cups boiling water
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup honey
5 tsp. salt
4 T. butter
1/2 cup warm water
3 T. yeast
9-12 cups flour

Mix boiling water, oats, honey, salt, and butter and let sit for 30 minutes.  Mix warm water and yeast let sit about 5 minutes until yeast rises to the top.  Add to oat mixture.  Slowly add in flour about 4 cups at a time.  Dough should still be slightly sticky and still able to handle.  Put in oiled bowl and let rise for about an hour.

Punch down and shape into 4 loaves.  Let rise for about an hour (until dough is about an inch above the pan).  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
