How did it taste?

All of it was there - taste, texture, crumb. It made me wonder why we ever knead anything. I baked it in a dutch oven and the crust was thick. Great stuff.

I followed a recipe here today that someone posted for no-knead bread:


1 cup mixed whole grain of your choice flour


2 cups white bread flour


1/3 cup starter mixed with enough water to equal 11/2 cup


2-1/2 tsp. salt.


They mentioned that the salt sounded like a lot but that the bread turned out great.


My husband has been the no-knead guy so I'm kind of horning in on his territory, but seems to me at times I thought his breads could have used more salt.


What is your recipe?  I'm thinking maybe too much starter in mine,...most recipes I've seen call for 1/4 cup.


By the way your bread looks gorgeous and delicious!
