Make:

From Lafcadio Hearn's La Cuisine Creole

"Hard Soap for Household Purposes:

To seven pounds of tallow, or other clean grease, use three pounds of rosin, add six gallons of water to this, and stir in two pounds of potash; boil this together for five hours, then turn the soap, while hot, into  a washtub and let it stay all night; when cool cut into bars, and lay on a board to harden. This quantity should be sufficient for a family of four persons for one year. "
