JGE 43 - 22 Most Wanted No-Knead Loaves

Good Day,

My No-Knead Bread array is 30% complete.  Jim's gotta eat.

22 loaves, 44 more to go.  66 to reach my flour and yeast habit. Jim's gotta eat.

Yes I use the same basic formula - 3 cups of flour; ½ teaspoon of yeast; 1 ½ teaspoons of salt; and 1 ½ cups of lukewarm water. Oven at 450° F. Covered La Cruset or covered Pyrex pots heated. 30 minutes covered; 15 minutes uncovered. Jim’s gotta eat.

Yes, I bend my basic recipe. White flour; whole wheat flour; hemp seeds; multi-grain flour; Kosher salt; sea salt; dried cranberries; raisins; cranberry juice. Jim’s gotta eat.

Similar loaves at Whole Foods Bakery - $4.99. 22 times - $109.78… Offset for expenses and ingredients, I may have saved $50.00. Jim’s gotta eat.

And does Hillsborough County allow for chickens? Fresh bread and an omelet. Jim’s gotta eat.

Enjoy your day,
