DeRusha Eats: Artisan Bread in 5

No-Knead Artisan Free-Form Loaf From “The New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.” Each loaf will average five minutes of active preparation time. Makes enough dough for four loaves, slightly less than 1 pound each. In a 5-quart container, mix yeast, water and salt. Add the flour, then use a spoon, stand mixer or high-capacity food processor to mix until uniform. Cover (not airtight) and allow to rise at room temperature for about two hours. The dough can be shaped and baked the day it’s mixed, or refrigerated in a lidded container (not airtight) for up to 14 days. The dough is easier to work with after three hours refrigeration.
