Easy Peasant Bread

Peasant Bread… An easy, and somewhat quicker bread to make for sandwiches, for toast, or just to snack on with butter and jam. When I first baked it, we already downed almost an entire loaf in a day! So, obviously I now like to double my recipe to have enough bread for multiple purposes throughout…
