No Knead First Attempt
I tried the no knead recipe found elsewhere on this forum for the first time. For me, I used the following, that seems to be accurate.
3 cups flour (I used bread flour in one and general purpose in the other)
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 teaspoon active yeast
1 tablespoon salt (original recipe had 1 teaspoon, but there were a number of comments that it should be more)
This is a shot right out of the oven still in their pots. 450 degrees, 30 minutes with lid on and 20 minutes with the lid off. The red round pot is the bread floour and the green oblong pot is the all purpose flour.
Right is bread flour and left is general purpose flour.
Crumb of the bread flour.
Crumb of the general purpose flour.
This is by far the best bread I have ever made. I love the crust and the moist texture. I did try more salt that the original recipe based on comments here, but I'd recommend 2 teaspoons as opposed to 1 tablespoon -- tasted a bit salty to me. I will continue to make these loaves perhaps trying a rye bread version.
