Pane Di Prato – Traditional Saltless Tuscan Bread

This is what my bread book has to say about Pane di Prato

“This typical Tuscan bread, also known as Pane Toscano, is made without salt. During the Middle Ages, Tuscany’s neighbouring provinces controlled the Italian salt market, levying a heavy salt tax. Unwilling to submit to their rivals, the Tuscans evolved breads made without salt. The method produces a bread with a yeasty flavour that stales quickly” – but it is SO yummy!

It was actually really easy to make (as far as breads with starters go) and was definitely a welcome Labour Monday morning treat.
