Cinnamon Cranberry Crusty Bread
3 C. All-Purpose Flour
1t. Kosher Salt
1T. Ground Cinnamon
3/4 C. Granulated Sugar
3/4 C. Dried Sweet Cranberries
1 1/2 C. Water
In a large bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients. Add dried cranberries and mix with a wooden spoon. Add water and mix with the same wooden spoon until the water is well incorporated and you have a "shaggy mess". Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow to sit 8-12 hours or overnight.
When you're ready to bake, preheat the oven to 450 F. Place a dutch oven with the lid on into the oven and warm it for 30 minutes. In the meantime, place your bread dough on a HEAVILY floured board. Knead a few times and shape it into a ball. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and allow to rest while your pot warms. Once your dutch oven is pre-heated, remove it from the oven and place your dough ball inside it. Replace the lid and bake for 25-30 mins. Remove the lid and bake for another 5-10 mins. depending on how browned you want your crust to be. Remove from the oven, let cool, and enjoy!
