Why ferment 18hrs in a 2nd bowl with oil?
I have just started making bread with Jim Lahey's No Knead method about 3 months ago, with no prior experince with cooking or baking.
That being said, I have "why" questions for different things explanined in his book and other things I read.
In Jim's book after mixing the ingredinece you then leave in the bowl for 12 to 18 hours.
On Jim's website he says after mixing the ingreadince you place in another bowl that has been lightly oiled.
What is the differece between letting the bread ferment 18hrs in the same bowl or another bowl that has oil in it??
Also spell check is not working. After I correct my words It still posts the wrong ones. Please advise......
