    2 1/2  cups          flour
    1      teaspoon      salt
    2      teaspoons     baking soda
    1      cup           vegetable shortening
    2      cups          sugar
    2      cups          ripe mashed bananas (about 6 bananas)
    4                    eggs -- slightly beaten
    1      cup           coarsely chopped walnuts
 
 Preheat the oven to 350.
 Grease and flour 2 8x4x3-inch loaf pans.
 Stir together the flour, salt and baking soda in a bowl. In another larger
 bowl, mix together the
 shortening, sugar, mashed bananas, eggs and walnuts. Add the combined dry
 ingredients and
 stir only until the batter is thoroughly blended.
 Pour into the prepared pans and bake 50-60 minutes, or until a skewer or
 straw inserted in the
 center of the loaves comes out clean, or with only a few moist crumbs.
 Remove from the oven
 and let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn out on a rack and let cool
 completely.
