I’ve been inspired recently to cook more at home. It might be the weather making my schedule slower and my homebody tendencies rise to the top – but I’ve loved trying new recipes, and even experimenting with my own!
I have loved making homemade Artisan Bread & have wanted to try to make some Rosemary Artisan Bread on my own! After scouring the internet and looking at so many recipes, I decided I would just play around and try one myself! This has parts from multiple recipes, and I am SO happy with how it turned out!
Rosemary Artisan Bread
3 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon ACTIVE DRY Yeast
1 1/2 Cups Room Temperature Water
2-3 Tbsp. Chopped FRESH Rosemary
1.) In a large bowl, add flour, salt, yeast, and rosemary. Gently mix. Then add warm water and use a spatula or spoon to mix until dough is formed in one ball.
2.) Cover the bowl with saran wrap and leave on the counter for 12-18 hours for it to rise.
3.) Place Empty Dutch Oven with lid on into your oven. Preheat oven to 450 F degrees. Leave Dutch Oven inside while oven is preheating.
4.) While oven is preheating, take a cutting board and flour the surface. With a spatula or your hands (if using hands, put some flour on them as dough will be sticky) – take dough out of bowl and place onto floured cutting board.
5.) Gently form into a ball. You DO NOT need to KNEAD this bread – but want to shape into a ball, gently. Take a serrated knife and slash an “X” into the top of the dough ball.
6.) Once oven is preheated, take Dutch Oven out and remove lid. IT WILL BE HOT! Place dough directly inside, cover, and place in the oven for 30 minutes. After it has cooked for 30 minutes with lid on, remove lid and cook for another 15 minutes, uncovered.
7.) Take your beautiful & delicious bread out of the oven. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before slicing. It will smell like Heaven, you might just eat the whole loaf.
