This video from http://www.breadtechnique.com describes the various ways to get moisture to the dough when you are baking an artisan loaf of bread on a baking stone. I doubt you'll get more steam than the featured lava rock method.

I just thought I would let you know that this week, my blog is all about BREAD!  A great recipe for Vermont Maple Honey Oatmeal bread, a unique giveaway of a set of handmade pottery garlic oil dipping bowls, and later in the week an interview with the bakers at King Arthur Flour!  I would love any comments or suggestions you might have over the next few days because I am a bread novice trying hard to learn!

Thought you might be interested in reading this interview with the staff at King Arthur Flour!  They have been very helpful in my bread making journey!

I need assistance. When my Gram made biscuits, they were like a food group. She could even shove a hunk of cheddar into the biscuit, bake it, and it would melt in your mouth. I have experimented and worked at this, and mine are still wimpy. Suggestions?

made an amazing (if i do say so myself) loaf of bread on friday - all crusty and chewy and tangy. i used my cast iron dutch oven.

the only problem was, the dutch oven got so hot preheating that when i took it out, the rubber part on my oven mitts started to melt and the entire kitchen was smoky and smelled like burnt rubber instead of delicious bread!


i think when i make some more tomorrow, i will make sure to only use fabric oven mitts...

its cool, I always preheat my oven by at least 50 degrees more than called for, then when I place my loaf on the stone, I turn the heat to the correct temp...we're small time bakers!  It's not nothin' to get worried about!
