  • bts,
    Just a quick caution to make sure that your pots are lead free. There are some recipes for these clay pots that do indeed include lead.[p]Even though the Romans thought wine was better from lead goblets, their limited lifespan probably had something to do with with their dishes. Seriously, lead is proving to be nasty stuff, and you dont want it on your food in any form.[p]You can get lead testing kits at some hardware stores. They're normally used to test for lead in dried paints on your walls.[p]Otherwise there shouldn't be any real problems besides the possibility of craking under high heat.[p]You can also pick up some split firebricks at a wood stove store. They can withstand high temps, and will take up less space.[p]That said, I think this is a really clever idea! I've wanted to get a couple lead free pots myself.[p]I've seen with great interest some recipes that call for baking bread inside of a lead free clay pot, but have yet
    to try it.[p]
    Have fun, and welcome to the obsession, er, uh, club!
