This No-Knead Sourdough Bread recipe is a “San Francisco-style” sourdough loaf, with a crackly crust and a chewy texture. It requires my no-knead method described in detail in the article, Salute to Sourdough (this will be online shortly). Be sure to read the full instructions there first, as they have been shortened below.

Wow! This is the greatest sourdough dough bread! I had to try this recipe because I didn't think no knead existed. I've been feeding and using the same starter for 2 months now and look forward to every loaf I make. I want to thank the person who found this recipe. Cindy :)
