I'm like most people, I LOVE homemade bread straight out of the oven with real butter. I like it with apple butter, or jelly. I like it plain... Its just so good and the smell is the best part.
I have been facinated with bread making and artisian, rustic types of bread for a good long time. I think I have 15 or more bread books. It fascinates me!
Last week I finally decided to try and make some rustic bread... I mixed up a poolish on Thursday. Yesterday I made bread!
Here is a picture of my Ciabatta. I still have a long way to go on properly shaping my loaves, but they sure tasted good!
Here is a shot of the inside...
I look forward to your comments!
