Bake Bread:  Artisan bread in five minutes!

http://www.artisanbreadinfive.com/?p=195 This link takes you to an easy recipe for bread you keep in the refrigerator

 

Quote from artisan bread site.

“Our book had great coverage in “The Week” magazine on April 18th (page 30 in the paper version).  But their version of our recipe has you throwing in 4 cups of water, rather than the correct 3 cups (see the fine print on the right, above).  Please use 3 cups, or you’ll have pancake batter!  The correct version of our basic recipe in the book (page 26) is:

3 cups lukewarm water

1 1/2 tablespoons granulated yeast

1 1/2 tablespoons kosher or other coarse salt

6 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

Cornmeal for the pizza peel

And then, you know the drill.  Mix with a spoon in a food-safe bucket, let it rise at room temperature for 2 to 5 hours, then into the fridge for two weeks.  Tear off chunks, shape, rest, and bake as needed.  And you all know you can decrease the yeast (http://www.artisanbreadinfive.com/?p=85) and the salt if you like it.  Details in the book. 

But there it is, pretty much.”

 

See you tomorrow for more food savings ideas.
