Bel, Re: Bill, you still haven't explained the salt rising bread.
Joy of Cooking does have a recipe for salt rising bread. and a complete set of instructions for making it. so rather than let this become a food thread, try looking there.
first, you need to find/cultivate a salt tolerent yeast. the yeast is cultured in a batter, similear to a sour dough, it is aromatic, to say the least. think of walking into a nice italian cheese store!
i don't know if it is in the current edition of joy, you might have to find an old one. my old joy (i have 2 copies) is circa 1970. and it has the almost the same recipe for turtle soup.

how much you can miss salt when you are long deprived of it
During the early days of the Biafran war, salt as an imported item was difficult to get hold of. We impressed onto our 8yr old servant the importance of salt for health "and because it makes everything taste better". He proudly announced he had managed to obtain some, and we were very pleased until we tasted the coffee!

Dr Bill -
I love salt rising bread; it makes the best toast. You can still find it at bakeries and grocery stores hereabouts.
I had always wondered at the origin of the name. Thanks so much!
