My first few attempts at breads

Nay, I'm not sharing any success stories here. But it's still a fun past time and I'll definitely try again.

I've been diligently collecting points to redeem a breadmaker for years. Then PS shared with me a quick and easy way to make Artisan Bread, so I decided to give it a try. What intrigued me the most is that it doesn't require any kneading at all, unlike those traditional home-made bread. 

My first batch turned out rather saltish. I guess I used the wrong type of salt, which was the coarsest that I could find.  

The 2nd attempt, I used normal salt and reduced it to less than 1 Tbs. It turned out rather mild, but because I wrapped some meat floss in it, its taste was rather nice. Still, I was not satisfied with the texture. Not as soft as I imagined, and the crust was a little too hard.

Hopefully I will have better bread result next round...

Yes, it's quite fun actually. You can include the kids too, though they will certainly mess up for you, just like mine did :)
