Add a 1/2 cup of flour and mix well. Allow to activate for 15-20 minutes, or until very foamy. Combine remaining flour with salt in a large mixing bowl. Stir in honey, milk, oil, yeast mixture and 2 cups of water. Mix well to form the dough. Knead the prepared dough on a well-floured surface for 5 minutes or more until it stops sticking. Transfer the dough to a greased bowl and brush the surface with oil. Cover the bowl with 3 dishtowels: a dry one, a dampened one and another dry one. Allow the dough to rise for 2 hours. Punch and knead the raised dough for 5 minutes on a floured surface. Divide the dough into 4 parts and roll each piece into baguette shaped or oblong shaped loaf. Arrange the loafs over a cookie sheet several inches apart from each other. Again cover the loaves with 3 dishtowels (dry, damp and dry again). Set in a warm place for 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Score the top of each bread at 3 to 4 places for a thicker crust. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until browned. Allow the baked loaves to cool completly before serving.
