I read a few posts about "No-knead bread" and it looks interesting. I'm very unhappy with bread prices here in Manhattan - $3.50 for a loaf of whole wheat bread is ridiculous in my opinion. I haven't tried KNB but it looks good from the pics I have seen. Can anyone here comment on using KNB for basic deli sandwiches, peanut butter sandwiches, etc?? Also, is it possible to make smaller loaves to act as rolls, hoagies, paninis? What sort of dish would be required to make something like that?
Also, could KNB be made to be healthy as a store-bought bread substitute? I see it's basically composed of flour, salt and water. Maybe I can incorporate multigrain and whole wheat flour and basically just cook up one of these every so often instead of buying supermarket bread? What's the shelf life of this KNB?
Thanks in advance!
