Ciabatta..makes 4 loaves..
6.5 Cups All purpose Flour (can use 1-2 cups wholemeal)
3 cups Warm water
1.5 tbsp Yeast
1.5 tbsp Salt
Place all in "big" plastic tub and mix well. Cover and place in warm spot for 3-4 hours and then into fridge. Following day, using floured hands, remove and place into smaller sealable container which will keep fine in fridge for 2 weeks.
For a loaf, prepare a slide with smeared olive oil and a sprinkling of corn meal. Using some flour, pull/cut off a 1/4 portion..
Don't handle too much but stretch out the base for about a minute, form into loaf shape and place on the prepared tray.. Cut a shallow cross across the top, sprinkle of flour and into oven..35mins - 210c
Tap the top to see if it sounds hollow..
I have made one with whizzed up sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and fresh rosemary.. mixed through the flour before adding the warm water...Lovely with lots of butter..
