How To Make Traditional French Baguettes At Home

These sourdough baguettes are some of the best that you can bake at home. They take a lot of patience, but once you hear that crunch, and taste they’re incredible flavor then you shouldn’t have a problem with that. Now Technically these are slightly shorter than a typical baguette, also known as demi baguettes. That’s just so they can fit in your darn oven.
