    5 cups sifted flour
    2 teaspoons ground ginger
    1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup shortening
    1 cup sugar
    1 egg
    1 cup molasses
    2 tablespoons vinegar

    Sift together flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt; set aside.

    Cream together shortening and sugar in bowl until light and fluffy, using electric mixer at medium speed. Add egg, molasses and vinegar; beat well.
