Sandwich Bread
#2
My newest obsession is bread from the Book Artisan Bread in Five minutes.
Basic recipe is this:

3 C. very warm (100 degree) water
1 & 1/ tbsp yeast
1 & 1/2 tbsp coarse salt
6 & 1/2 C. all purpose flour

Mix, but do not knead. Let rise two hours (or more) then either use or refrigerate.

To make basic French bread, tear off a piece the size of a grapefruit. Flour it so it doesn't stick to your hands (this is a WET dough) and stretch the top over and down to the bottom. turn it a quarter of the way and do it again. Do this four time, let it rest and rise for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place and preheat a pizza baking stone in oven. when heated and bread has rested, sprinkle corn meal on stone, place pan of water on rack beneath stone, and make two slits on top of bread. Slide bread onto stone, bake 30 minutes.

This makes real french bread, which I use for everything, sandwiches included.

If I want some quick bread, I tear off a hunk the size of an orange, roll it out and toss it in a frying pan with some hot ghee. Three minutes on each side, and it is done, and I have a flatbread called Nan.

The dough will keep in the fridge for two weeks, and get better with age. It is a wet dough, and that is the secret to it keeping well.
