I love, love, love bread.,,all kinds of bread. Savory and sweet. Baking it. Eating it. These days one of my favorite recipes is an artisan no knead bread which I bake in my cast iron pot. It's an easy one:
Stir together 3 c flour, 1/4 t yeast and 2 1/2 t salt, then add 1 1/2 c + 2 T tepid water and mix well. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit 12-18 hours. Sprinkle counter well with flour and turn sticky dough onto it, fold over a couple of times and allow to rest on a well floured or cornmeal coated towel for 2 hours. Heat oven to 425F with a lidded cast iron pot. Take heated pot out of oven, sprinkle well with cornmeal and gently roll bread into pot. Cover with lid and bake 45 minutes to 1 hour. Yummy!
