Salt and Serenity bakes without salt!

This week in the Bread Baker's Apprentice Challenge I baked Tuscan bread.  This is an unusual loaf in that it is made without salt.  Imagine my horror!  I must say that I found myself being quite creative on how to consume this bread.

I forgot to add salt to a Barley Bread recipe that I made up.  I was worried about an oversized Yeasty bread, or a Bread that had not formed correctly.  My internet research led me to sites that advised on not cutting out salt, as it regulates the yeast activity and helps form the bread.


None of this advice was true.  I suspect that the advice served to sell salt.  Other than being a little bland tasting, nothing was wrong with the Bread.  It formed and rose normally.
