Modify your oven to bake great bread

This article form Backwoods home gives a how to on turning your home oven into an oven similar to a barkers over.
With this modification you can turn out bread that raises and browns properly. Emily tells us that when we put the dough into the oven is should be really hot to capture the yeast action while it is available.

Home ovens lose heat when opened and by the time they have gotten back to proper temp a lot of the yeast action has been lost. Very interesting read for any one that likes to bake their own bread.
