3 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon active dried yeast
1 1/3 cups room temperature water
In a large bowl combine the flour, salt and yeast. Stir.
Add the water and stir. You will be left a sticky, shaggy mess.

Leave to rise for 12 hours.
Remove the dough from the bowl and place on parchment paper, shape well.
Pre heat the oven to 425F
Cover the dough with plastic wrap or a tea towel and leave for a further 30 minutes.
Place the Dutch oven in the oven to heat up.
After 30 minutes lift the parchment paper into the hot Dutch oven. Put the lid on tight and bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes. You know the bread is done when you turn the loaf upside down and knock on the base. It should sound hollow.
Remove the loaf from the Dutch oven and allow to cool on a baking rack.
