Pagnotta - Italian country bread

This bread is made with about 25% organic whole wheat flour with the rest made up of swany white organic unbleached flour. It's a very good bread with a crunchy crust, soft insides and it will last two to three days before getting stale.

This bread bakes at 400•F. When it is taken out of the oven, it makes a crackling sound as it cools.
