No-Knead, No Quilting

I finally made the no-knead bread I mentioned the other day. I actually love kneading bread, but I have to say, this is the most delicious bread I've ever made! The crust is nice and crisp (like from a French bakery) and the inside has lots of little tiny air pockets, making an awesome texture. The recipe is from the New York Times on November 8th and you can actually watch a video of the process here. The only trick to this incredibly simple process is having the patience to let it sit for 18 hours!

No quilting to show today - only had a chance to connect some of the geese together for Round Four.

I bet it is yummy *s* My problem would be the 18 hours would be up at 2 a.m. I don't always think ahead on those sorts of things.

I went beyond my 18 hours for that very reason - also because I don't keep my apartment at 70F all day and night - no problem. I think between 12 and 24 hours is good.

Mmmmm ... I would like to try that one. And I have to say, I'm really liking the look of that pot you have there!

That looks pretty easy. Nice red pot. I have a similar one, but it is cream. Now that summer is here I don't get much of a chance to use it, so this recipe would be perfect. I'm not very patient though...

I've got to try that - it really does look easy - who needs a breadmaker when you've got this recipe?

I was thinking of buying a bread maker. The expense of getting in the car most days just to get a baguette or a pain is ridiculous (and think what we are doing to the Ozone layer!).

However, now I don't have to.

Thanks for publishing that.

The bread looks delicious. I've got a no knead bread I've been meaning to try, it only needs 40 minutes to rise though.

Thanks for the recipe. When I am up and at 'em again, I intend to make it! Sounds delicious!

Warm bread sounds wonderful with cold snow!

Sandra said...

18 hours!!!! Sounds delicious though :-)

Cynthia said...

18 hours certainly is a long time. The bread looks delicious.

Dawn said...

Wow, I wanted to try that bread, but 18 hours huh? Not sure I could wait that long for bread! Mmmm I love bread!

Hi Hedgie, tried to leave a comment yesterday or the day before but Blogger wasn't having any of that!
Thanks so much for your nice comment over at Pieces again.
If you'd want to send me your snail mail addy, I could get some scraps heading your way...*VBS* Hugs, Finn

Actually, the 18 hours thing is ok if you do it over night. I guess if you made it at teatime on day 1, it would be ready for the following morning. I think I might try this!
