Bread making a new challenge for me has spurred me on due to the fact that speciality breads or artisan breads are just getting out of this world expensive so my hobby has be born making bread! This is an Cook's Illustrated recipe with instructions for the care of a Dutch Oven in high heat. Please read in my notes before making this bread to protect your Dutch Oven from cracking and being ruined. An enameled cast-iron Dutch oven with a tight-fitting lid yields best results, but the recipe also works in a regular cast-iron Dutch oven or heavy stockpot.Transferring dough to a preheated Dutch oven to bake can be tricky. To avoid burnt fingers and help the dough hold its shape, we came up with a novel solution: Let the dough rise in a skillet its shallow depth makes it better than a bowl that's been lined with greased parchment paper, then use the paper's edges to pick up the dough and lower it into the Dutch oven. The bread remains on the parchment paper as it bakes.
