Homemade Bread

I haven't tried this yet, but I am anxious to do so. I LOVE homemade bread.

This will keep in your fridge for up to 2 weeks, so you can just take out what you need each day and cook it. Sounds cool!

3 cups lukewarm water
1-1/2 TB granulated yeast (1-1/2 pkgs)
1-1/2 TB kosher salt or other coarse salt
6 1/2 cups unsifted, unbleached, all-purpose white flour, measured by scooping the flour into the measuring cup and with a knife, scrape the top off the measuring cup

In a 5 quart container, put all the ingredients in and just mix it up with a wooden spoon. Mix it until all the flour is worked into the liquid and it is all moist. Make sure your container is in a 5 qt lidded, but not airtight, bowl. Put the lid on with one corner cracked (to let the gases escape as it rises). Let it sit on your counter for 2-1/2 hours then put it in the refrigerator over night….
