No-Knead Crusty White Bread could get any better, but...
Acquired a dutch oven.
This diminutive little loaf was the best one yet. The dutch oven made for a thick, crunchy crust, and an elastic crumb with big beautiful holes.
It's a cast iron dutch oven, small diameter (8") but tall. Should be a great size because it'll coddle a small loaf but can handle a large one by means of its height. Also plays nice in the little oven compartment of our Kitchen Queen - happy to share rack space.
Look at that crazy texture!
Didn't have enough left for a very large loaf. The next batch will be fewer and larger loaves. This one was gone in a flash.
