  2. Let this sit for about 8 or 10 minutes. Assuming your water was hot enough.
  3. Now you need to add about 3 more cups of flour. 
  4. Once it gets too tough to stir, flip it onto a clean floured surface. Now, knead away, adding flour as you do so.
  5. When you finish this part put it back in the bowl and cover it with a slightly damp towel
  6. let the dough rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes to an hour. the dough should be about doubled in size by the time it’s finished.
  7. Punch the dough down then divide it into 3 parts. Then put those parts in separate pots and keep in aside for the rise.
  8. Then preheat your oven to 375 F and put the loaves in.
  9. Bake them for about 25 minutes.
  10. Your quick-read thermometer should read between 180 and 190 degrees. Pull the loaves out and place them on their sides on a rack, after a few seconds slide them out of the pans and onto the rack. Let them cool.
