Speaking of Large Loaves: NPR's Basque Sheepherder's Bread

This morning on NPR was a Kitchen Sisters story about Basque Sheepherders.  They told us to go to the web site for recipes, including one for bread.  I found it at

This NPR recipe calls for, among other ingredients, 3 cups of water and 9 1/2 cups ap flour.  Later on you are to form it into one ball and bake it in a Dutch oven at 375 for 12 minutes with the lid on, and then 30-35 more minutes without.
