The crust is the outside of the bread; the crumb is the inside. Look at those lovely holes! And the texture is great. This is so not like my normal loaf of bread. Same ingredients: flour, water, salt, yeast, but different proportions. The no-knead loaf is pretty wet, and that's what gives the crumb those holes. The taste is different, too. I like both my breads, the normal one, and the no-knead one. I can see a bread like this with soup or stew.
