Bread recipes are all over the internet. We use our standard bread recipe.
The main thing is the pot. Do not use China made (lead content) or glazed pots.
We purchased the pots at garden centers. Then wash very well, air dry. When dry season inside of pot and rims very well. Put on cookie sheets and put in oven at 350 for 20-30 min. Turn oven off. leave pots in the oven. next day take them out and reseason.
Fire again in the oven. turn it off. let them sit.
Pots are ready. We use parchment paper to cover the bottom of pot.
After the first rise divide dough to fill pots half way. Let rise till dough is at rim of pots and bake. 450 for about 20 mins. after 10 mins take them out of the pots and place on wire racks to cool. After rest of meal done we put them back into pots for presentation.
