Country Style Hearth Loaf
This bread is a result of my third attempt at Daniel Leader's country style hearth loaf. I used all King Arthur's bread flour for this. I am going to use whole wheat next batch, but I wanted to try my first few loafs with bread flour. I'm hoping for a much darker color next time. This bread has turned out very tasty, and I'm excited to try it with whole wheat. I'm such a newbie, that I get so excited pulling the loafs out of the oven. I sat like a little kid at my counter, watching and listening to these cool! What a nice and satisfying crackle they had as the moisture was redistributed to the crust as they cooled! Maybe that giddy feeling never goes away? I kind of hope not!
