I’m big on using parchment paper
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups luke-warm water
1-2 tsp sea salt
1/2-1 tsp yeast
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, salt and yeast. Add the water and using a wooden spoon stir together until the mixture resembles a shaggy dough.Cover dough with a plastic wrap and let sit in room temperature for 8-18 hours. Dough will bubble up and rise. After dough is ready, preheat oven to 450 F.Turn the dough onto a well-floured surface and with floured hands form the dough into a ball. Cover with the plastic wrap and let the dough rest.While dough is resting, put your dutch oven into the preheated oven for 30 minutes.After the 30 minutes are up carefully remove the dutch oven and with floured hands place the bread dough into it. (You can put a piece of parchment under it if your dutch oven doesn’t have an enamel coating.) Replace the cover and bake for 30 minutes covered. Then remove the cover and bake for an additional 15 minutes uncovered.
Bread will be golden, crusty and delicious!
I used a full teaspoon of yeast because I like the flavor in bread. 1/2 teaspoon will work as well if you do not!
I like salt a lot- I have added up to 3 teaspoons to this recipe and it’s been great!
And of course….Alton Brown’s No knead sourdough bread
