"Melt two kilograms of fat [tallow] in one litre of soft (rain) water. Set aside. When cool, sprinkle in one cup of lye crystals. (Make sure you do not touch the lye. It burns.) Stir until cool as the lye will re-heat the tallow. Then stir occasionally until the mixture is thick. Pour into a wooden, lined with cloth. Score with a knife. Next day, or when completely cold, cut into bars."
