 Since we didn't have space for full-fledged earth oven, we created a claypot oven, using the readymade materials of a terra cotta pot and 4 cement pavers. Instructions for this can be found  here .

 Once the fire is going, close the door and let it heat up.
       
     
 The weather was so cold and with temperatures in the 30's, we needed a packing blanket to help insulate the oven.

Beer Bread

Made in the earth oven! Actually it was 75% made in the earth oven, but it was such a cold day that we had to finish it in a standard oven. Do this project when the weather is at least above 50 degrees!
