Just mix a fairly wet sticky dough of flour, water, and just a little yeast or sourdough starter (less yeast than your normal bread recipe). Just mix it up but don't knead it, and leave it too sticky to knead, anyway. Leave it on the shelf for several hours or overnight. When it has fully risen and looks like a big bubbly liquid in the bowl, stir it down, then turn it out of the bowl. Line the bowl with a well-floured cloth and dump the dough blob back in. Leave it again for an hour or until pretty well risen.
Now preheat the oven at 475F with the empty Dutch oven inside. When it's good and hot, carefully pull out the Dutch oven and dump the dough into it from the floured cloth. Put the hot lid back on, put it back in the oven, turn down the oven to 350F, and bake till done. The timing varies with the size of your batch and the size of the Dutch oven. You can tell when it's done by turning the loaf out and rapping on the bottom with your knuckles. Basically, it should sound dry through, not doughy inside.
This bread is very impressive. I'd recommend it if you're going to have guests for dinner.
I've been seeing this idea around. I have to try it!

I’ll definitely have to check out the source.
1984 quotes notwithstanding, if that number is correctly pulled from established and accepted sources, I truly feel like it would be splashed over the internet. There are plenty if people upset about pesticides, gmos, air pollution, you name it. But, maybe I’m wrong.

this sounds like it will work:
Our cancer rates are
also like 50 and 200 times higher too. Since the 1860s our cancer rates
have jumped to being between 500 to 1000 times higher now too. Just to
be very clear, that’s not 500 to 1,000% higher. No, it’s a whopping
50,000% to 100,000% higher. In the context of recent history, say over the
last 100 years or so, the rates of the “autoimmune” diseases in North
America are easily now 500 times higher too.
