Hot Water Gingerbread

1 cup molasses
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 cup boiling water
11/2 teaspoons ginger
21/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons melted butter
Add water to molasses. Mix and sift dry ingredients, combine mixtures, add butter, and beat vigorously. Pour into a buttered shallow pan, and bake twenty-five minutes in a moderate oven. Chicken fat tried out and clarified furnishes an excellent shortening, and may be used in place of butter.
