If you are feeling intimidated by taking the plunge into making bread, we can guarantee this is the recipe for you. You will need a little bit of patience, but believe us, the payoff will be worth it when you are tucking into the most pillowy soft bread of your life! This simple and forgiving dough is made with a poolish instead of a sourdough starter: simply prepare your poolish the night before you plan to make your dough, and it will be ready to go in the morning! If you cannot find lemon-thyme in stores, use normal thyme or rosemary, and add the zest of half a lemon on the top before serving! Other wonderful substitutions for blackcurrants are blueberries, cherries and even blackberries: combinations are endless!
