I *think* I remember reading that some people here do no-knead breads.
3 Questions for you on the subject:
Do no-knead breads (such as the book Artisan Bread in 5-Minutes a Day...which I love by the way) count as soaking? Because you don't use any acidic medium in the water (such as whey or vinegar).
Also, the first loaf only soaks for a few hours, so it doesn't count right? Only any future loaves from the wet dough that is 24+ hours old, correct?
But is it okay that it is in the fridge, not out on the counter-top where it is slightly warm?
Thanks for helping!
