This week’s goal:  bake in pot!

I posted a really long 6ws on my regular blog, so I’ll keep this one short and sweet. 

I have a fairly new small (3 quart?) enameled cast-iron dutch oven and I intend to use it for bread-baking.

I tried it out for the first time last week for my second attempt at Sicilian No-Knead Bread

But then I had to go out while the bread was baking.  I told Ted to remove the cover after 30 minutes and bake it 10-15 minutes longer, which he faithfully did… and in the end, the bread was woefully underdone.

But he did say I really must make the bread again.  Indeed, what there was of it that was edible was simply amazing:  gritty and moist and robust and flavourful, with the most crunchy crust.

But I may not make this recipe.  I may see what Jim Lahey, the master of no-knead-dutch-oven-baking has to say about semolina.  Or, I took out Bread:  A Baker’s Book from the library again, and I may use that to look for formulas instead.

In any event, there it is, in six words, my intention for This Week in Bread:  bake in pot.  Oh, and revive my sourdough, but then, that would be more than six words…
