Artisan Bread in a Crockpot
Hmm...my sister climbed Half Dome at Yosemite the other weekend. And I made artisan bread in a crockpot. It's nice that we sisters can share our accomplishments.
This was posted on Artisan Bread in 5. I liked the conversation starter of making bread in the crockpot, but I didn't see much of an advantage otherwise since the time is similar to making it in the oven. I guess I could make it at my desk and eat some fresh baked bread at work. Talk about a conversation starter! The more I read it seems like the advantage is breadmaking in the summertime when it's less likely to seem like a good idea to heat up the kitchen with the oven. OK, I can buy that. But, for now, I just made this in the crockpot to talk about doing it.
We all have our accomplishments....running a marathon....walking a block.....climbing Half Dome....making bread in a crockpot.....
