My wife made this and it is probably the best that I've tasted

Kipper Snacks?

The best way is to bbq the kippers so that you don't stink up the house. We prefer the vacum packed Aberdeen Kippers - the whole fish complete with bones. What a treat!!

No knead , no fuss, bread

I've been using the following procrdure for some time with great sucess.
3 cups flour (I use multigrain) 1/4 tsp instant yeast, 11/3 cups lukewarm water
Sift yeast into the water. Measure out flour into large bowl. Mix thoroughly with water/yeast. Cover bowl and put to side for 12 to 24 hrs. (The time does not seem to be critical.)
After the 12+ hrs gently use a scraper to transfer the dough into the cooking pot . Cver the pot and let sit for 2hrs.
Preheat the oven to 500F.Put the pot , lid on, in oven. Cook at 475F for 1/2 hr then remove lid, reduce temp to 450F and cook for further 15min.
Cool and enjoy
To prevent the bottom burning I put a baking tray on the bottom rack and the potson the next.(I cook 3 breads at a time)
I also cook the bread in my convection toaster oven but use a plate as a lid.

no knead bread

Is there any info on not preheating the pot before baking the bread?
