Le Pain De Josée~
6 1/2 cups flour
3 cups tepid water
1 1/2 tbsps bread machine fast acting yeast
1 1/2 tbsps of fine table salt..
some additional flour
In a 16 cup mixing bowl..mix dry ingredients and then add water.. mix until combined then take your hand and circumference the bowl and dough 40 times..mixing..it will be sticky:)
Cover w/ cling and set aside ap 2 hrs at 72 degrees F..
This will make 4 baguettes..
I took 1/4 of the dough..shaped it w/ out working it a lot..as she recommends.. slashed it.. and sprinkled w/ flour..and covered it w/ a cloth left to rise 40 mins..
For 30 mins preheat your oven to 450.. add a pan of water and have your spray bottle ready:)After the 30 mins..spray the oven..and set your shaped loaf in.. Bake for 25 minutes..and there you have it..
I place my bread on cornmeal on a bread paddle and slide it on a baking stone in my oven..
I have 3 more loaves to go..How fun is that?
Thank you so much Josée~
You may remember my recent post re her Red pepper Jelly that is now one of my daughter's favorites♥
With a little cheese or pâté..they go together like a horse and carriage..
Anyone who has ever been afraid of making bread.. should try this..You will never be afraid again.:)
Have a lovely Weekend~
