      This bread is really good and easy to make. I'm fairly new to breadmaking, and I didn't know if I should knead this dough or not, but I needed the release that kneading provides, so I did. I found that it's best to line your baking sheet with some parchment paper because when you brush the loaves, the water drips into the cornmeal and turns it into concrete on your baking sheet. This recipe makes a good sandwich bread. Thanks for posting!
