Ciabatta

  
These were pretty messy to make, but they definitely provided the chewiness that Soup Boy was looking for to dunk into the split pea and lentil soup today. 
I think I will go back to more regulation sourdough, although the biga for these was easy enough.

    For some reason I like plain old bakery (or homemade) white bread. WhenI was volunteering in Savannah a few years back, their bakery sold half a loaf which is wonderful for a single person! I’ve never seen it sold like that anywhere else.

  2. Wow those look delicious! I’ll have to try that sometime.

  3. Ahhh look at this crust! 🙂

      There was definitely a crust! Please hand me the hacksaw! It softened up as they cooled. More practice needed.

      • But I love a real crust in bread! 🙂

        Thanks. There is no sugar in the recipe, so browning was difficult. I remember when I made sourdough bread on a regular basis, there was no sugar, but it browned beautifully. That was a different part of the country, and a different oven. I’ve found my dried sourdough granules, so am going to give that a whirl next.

    This looks great, Judie. We love ciabatta, too, and have a wonderful bakery where you can buy the most tasty ciabatta filled with little pieces of olives, so delicious. I only need some salted butter with this. Virtual hugs, Mitza

    I love ciabatta but I usually buy mine from the health food store. I know it’s better straight from the oven though. I just don’t think I have the patience.
