Crusty Bread - Recipe

I am one for always trying out new bread recipes.
I was very curious when I stumbled upon a recipe that you let rise over night.

This one did not fail me and was so good.
So very easy to make and had such wonderful flavor.
You could even make this for your holiday dinner
for the day after for left over sandwiches.
You will not be disappointed and easy enough to make weekly.
I used dh's cast iron dutch oven but you can use any large pot that can handle
450 degrees and has a lid.

Crusty Bread Recipe:

3 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 3/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon yeast

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, salt and yeast. Add water and mix until a shaggy mixture forms. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and set aside for 12 -18 hrs. Overnight works great. Heat oven to 450 degrees. When the oven has reached 450 degrees, place a cast iron pot (or one that can stand the heat and heat for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, pour dough onto a heavily floured surface and shape into a ball. Cover with plastic wrap and let set while the pot is heating. Remove hot pot from the oven and drop in the dough. Cover and return to oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes remove the lid and bake an additional 15 minutes. Remove the bread from the oven and place on a cooking rack to cool.
