Eat this bread plain. Eat it with some butter. Or...maybe try this delightful Peach Butter (I'll add this recipe later in the week). But please, try this recipe if you've got a hankerin' for some homemade bread.
Here's my version of the recipe. But if you make this, I recommend following the link to the article and reading through the "real" recipe.
(makes 4, 1-lb loaves, the pictures above show a 1-lb loaf)
3 c. lukewarm water (about 100 degrees, but I never measure)
1-1/2 Tbsp. yeast (1-1/2 to 2 pkgs)
1-1/2 Tbsp. kosher or coarse salt
6-1/2 C. flour
Mix water, yeast and salt together, but you don't need to disolve the yeast all the way. Add the flour and mix until all flour is mixed in and a ball (a slightly sticky ball) forms. I use the dough hook on my stand mixer. Dump in a 5-qt container. If it has a lid, all the better, just leave one corner open. Let this sit on the counter for at least 2 but no more than 5 hours. Put in the fridge until you're ready to use. When you're ready to use it, cut off about 1/4 of the dough (it will be sticky, so throw some extra flour on the dough and incorporate so it is manageable). Gently knead in your hands a few times and form into a ball or loaf. Put it on a cookie sheet (I line the sheet with parchment so it doesn't stick) and let it sit for 30-40 minutes (more is better). about 15 - 20 mins in, put a pan of water in the oven and heat to 450. Just before baking, cut a couple of long slits in the top of the loaf with a cerrated knife. Bake @ 450 for 30 mins.
Dough stores in the fridge for about 2 weeks.
