      Title: Sourdough french bread #3
 Categories: Breads
      Yield: 6 Servings
 
      3 c  All-purpose flour (I use
           -unbleached Gold Medal)
      1 ts Salt
      1 ts Sugar
    1/2 pk Dry yeast
      1 c  Sourdough starter
 
  In a large bowl... Mix the dry yeast in body-heat water (about 1/4 to
  1/2 cup) Add 2 cups of the flour, the starter, salt and sugar and
  stir for about 10 minutes
  
  When smooth, cover with a damp towel and let rise for at least 1 1/2
  hours
  
  Stir in one cup of flour, or enough to make the dough rigid.
  
  Knead dough on a well-floured bread board for 10-15 minutes Roll into
  a long loaf or form into a round ball, depending on your preference
  Place on a baking sheet sprinkled with corn meal Cover with a damp
  towel and let rise for at least 1 1/2 hours
  
  (with this recipe the long rise times allow you to enjoy a ball game,
  read the Sunday paper, trim your toe nails, and mow the lawn)
  
  Place a pan in the bottom of the oven, and fill it with boiling water
  (this, she told me, is the secret weapon)
  
  Mix 1/2 t of cornstarch in about 1/4 cup of hot water
  
  Make several diagonal slices in the top of the loaf to prevent it from
  breaking up when it fills with steam; brush the loaf with the corn
  starch mixture
  
  Place the loaf (on the bread pan sprinkled with corn meal) in the oven
  above the water pan and bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes
  
  Remove from the oven, and brush again with the corn starch mixture
  
  Remove the water pan from the oven and refill it with cold water
  
  Place the bread and water pan back in oven (water pan below the
  bread) and bake for about 25 minutes
