Simple Artisan Bread

Now that its cold outside (SO COLD!), I can start making my favorite crusty artisan bread again! I mix it up at night before I go to bed, let it sit on the counter all night (getting slightly sour and yummy!) and the in the morning, I literally pat it with flour and plop it in a hot Le Crueset french oven and bake it for a bit.

The result is ah-mazing.  Crusty on the outside, tender with a slight tang on the inside. The longer you let it sit, the more "sourdough" flavor you get.

You do have to have your oven on pretty high for a while, so that's why I wait til its wintertime to do it. Its fun to warm up the kitchen on a frosty morning, and then have fresh hot bread. Mmmm!!!

The link to the recipe I use is here from Simply So Good.
