peasant bread

I made my best loaf of bread EVER today and yes, the picture is actually the one I baked before it got devoured. I followed this recipe in Mother Earth News. It takes patience but has only four ingredients! It is easy (no knead)and very pleasing. It's got a nice chewy crust and moderately spring inside. My attempts have usually been too dense to ever get baked right through.

My apologies for the pain this may cause my beloved family members that I can't make this for. For those who can and have been intimidated by baking your own, I encourage you to give this recipe a try.

Update: The recipe worked well with a spelt/rice flour combo but not so much as a gluten free bread. The crust was nearly impenetrable and the inside seemed done but had a very odd texture.
