No Knead Artisan Bread

Monday, January 10, 2011
Artisan bread is a style of bread with a short shelf-life bread that is usually made and eaten the same day for the perfect full fresh taste it gives.


The bread requires virtually no tools done by hand in minutes and rises with very little work.


This is all homemade from scratch but you can use all store-bought and can really be made into any shape you prefer


The bread can also be used for toasting leftover and delicious with a dab of your favorite preserves or melted butter spread on it
