Re: [DUTCH OVEN COOKING] Bread help needed...
- Hi Nancy,
Ouida and I baked biscuits all one day while doing a Demo for the Texas Parks
and Wildlife Warm Water Center in Athens, Texas. Here is the process that I
used for the baking. We were using a 12 inch shallow oven.
1. Warm up oven with a few coals under the center of the oven.
2. Place a few coals on the top of the oven that is setting on the trivet to
start the warming process.
3. Coat the inside of the oven with an even spread of Crisco.
4. Place the cut biscuits in the bottom of the oven and brush the tops with
butter. Then cover with the lid.
5. Add enough coals to the bottom to increase the number to 9. I usually
make a circle with seven coals and then place 2 in the middle. Be sure to
allow at least 2 inches between the coals.
6. Add enough coals to the lid to increase the number to 18 coals placed in
a checker board pattern to cover the lid. This should get you close to 375
7. Check the contents after about 20 minutes. The tops of the biscuits
should be turning brown. Remove the lid and place on a trivet and then
remove the pot from the coals and remove the contents. Serve some of the
best biscuits that you have ever eaten.
We used the Pioneer Mix for the Demo and the biscuits were wonderful.
