This is our walnut sourdough that Mary put together yesterday. It just came out of the fridge where it spent the night. Today was baking day.

We are using our Big Green Egg as our bake oven and it has worked out very well, nice even heat.

The first loaf just about ready to come out of the pot. We use a cast iron pot placed on a pizza stone to help displace the heat from the charcoal. Today it seemed to work just fine.

Both loaves done and cooling. The second one looks to have risen a little more, maybe due to the fact it sat out an extra hour while the first one cooked.

Last week we had problems with scorched bottoms, seems we have solved that problem.

Time to sample a slice.

Thanks for stopping by and safe travels everyone.

  1. Looks good and I can imagine the aroma is to die for. I'm praying for Mary today that the next two days will be successful.
