French Bread - 2006
Machine knead, Hand Shape, Oven bake

This is a soft French Bread, with lots of flavor and great shape and size. Its texture is as nearly comparable to commercial bread as you'll ever make without salt. Stays fresh in zip lock bags for days. For even more freshness add 1-tablespoon of Granular Lecithin.
