Homemade Quick Bread Mix

When Myrna and I saw this quick bread mix and the recipes that used it in “Crisco Cooking" we knew we had to make it.  I volunteered to make the mix and we split it, both making some recipes from it.  We will share some of those the rest of the week.  I can say that it worked very well and was easy to make in my food processor.  I am including a half recipe if you want to try a smaller amount first.
This is the easy way to make a variety of gift loaves or pot-luck bring-alongs.      
Homemade Quick Bread Mix
  6 Cups
12 Cups
5 Cups Sifted All Purpose Flour

10 Cups  Sifted All Purpose Flour

2 ½ tablespoons  Baking Powder
1/3 Cup  Baking Powder
2  Tablespoons Sugar
1/4  Cup  Sugar
½ Tablespoon  Salt
1 Tablespoon  Salt
 1 Cups  Shortening
2 Cups  Shortening

Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl.  Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. 
If making a ½ recipe, you can combine dry ingredients in the food processor and pulse a few times to cut in the shortening.
Store in covered container up to 6 weeks at room temperature.  For longer storage, place in freezer.
To measure, spoon mix into measuring cup and level with spatula.
