No-Salt White Bread

READY IN: 3hrs 5mins
Recipe by JennyMidget

Very simple white bread recipe for breadmaker (if you're clever you can adapt for oven!) Whole wheat flour could be substituted. This is originally a medieval Tuscan recipe, created by peasants who couldn't afford the high taxes on salt. Perfect for those of us on low-sodium diets!

This was a very good and easy recipe!! Following the instructions was easy too. While the machine is mixing all the ingredients together, I do use a spatula to scrape around the sides so that it adds to the mixture. My husband must adhere to to a very low restricted sodium diet for health reasons, so I was very happy that he really likes this bread and that it was easy to make.
