How to increase block size in DES encryption/decryption??

P: 52
I am making a DES encryption/decryption program using OpenSSL library.
I am using function
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. des_ecb_encrypt(des_cblock *input, des_cblock *output, des_cblock *keysched, int mode);
This function can encrypt/decrypt only 8bytes block at a time. Thus takes a lot of time during encryption/decryption.

Please tell, if there is any other way/function that can take larger block size, or any other function which implements DES in a faster manner.

I suspect bigger key will give you bigger block, but they should be multiples of 8 bytes (i think)
