While trying to eat more local/homemade foods, I started thinking about bread. So many commercial breads contain high fructose corn syrup (and I don't care what the TV ads say, I don't think it's all that safe. Too many chemicals involved in the processing), and even the ones that don't still contain preservatives. So when I saw an article in Mother Earth News for bread that contains only flour, water, yeast, and salt and required minimal preparation, it piqued my interest.
Reading the article, I found that the "5 minutes a day" tagline was a bit of exaggeration. The bread has to sit for a while to rise, and then sit again before baking. But, really, all you have to do is mix the ingredients together. Then you let it sit. Then you refrigerate it for at least 3 hours. Cut off a hunk and let it sit again. Then bake.
I've got a wad of very sticky bread dough in the fridge right now, and I'm planning on baking it up tomorrow. We'll see how this goes... If it works, I'll share the recipe!
