Stock Pot Loaves II

Hi again. 

I liked the way my stock pot loaves came out last week, so I figured I would try it again. I also wanted to make my loaves with no additional flour which typically gets added during all that dusting for stretch and folds, again for stretch and folds, shaping, whatever. Not that this was really high hydration dough, this is a basic white flour sourdough with hydation of 65%, I just wanted to keep it like that all the way to the bake, and also to completely avoid adding any unfermented flour into the mix.

 I could not resist trying to show these, as I am new to being able to post pictures directly to the forum. I usually bake my sourdough loaves on hot tiles with just parchment paper underneath, but I have been watching some videos on baking in a covered pot, and today decided to try it. I just took my first ones out of the oven. You can't hear it, but there is cracklin goin on...
