Last summer, Liziqi’s sister made a bread kiln for Liziqi. I made one recently when I had time. Kiln-baked bread is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. It has the aroma and temperature of charcoal fire. After eating it, you can know what happiness tastes like…
What Is Bread Kiln?
Bread kilns use the radiant heat of the kiln to bake food. Generally, it is divided into brick kiln and earth kiln. Because earth kiln is relatively simple and has good thermal insulation effect, this time I chose to make earth kiln.
How To Make Earth Bread Kiln?
The structure of the earth kiln is roughly divided into the thermal layer (soil + sand), the thermal insulation layer (empty glass bottle) and the structural layer (soil + sand + straw).
Clay generally uses rural loess, and you can do a simple soil test before doing it. See the video for details.
The air in the empty glass bottle can reduce the loss of heat and achieve the effect of heat preservation. In the same way, the bottom of the stone is also because there is air in the middle of the stone.
The height of the kiln mouth is 63% of the height of the whole kiln, so that the air can be circulated well and the firewood can be fully burned at the same time.
It is best to air dry the bread kiln naturally, but considering the differences in temperature and humidity in various places, areas with high humidity in winter cannot dry for a month. I opened the kiln two days later, and then set it on fire. If you have time, you can wait a few days before dismantling.
To Bake A Crisp And Sweet Bread
The bread kiln can not only bake bread, roast chicken, biscuits, and pizza! Just need to master the appropriate heat and time according to the needs of different temperatures. Usually the bread baked in the new kiln is not as good as the old kiln, and it is very good to bake it twice more.
Measuring the “happiness” of food is inevitably a bit abstract, but if you insist on being specific, it is probably that you can feel satisfied from the tip of your tongue to the bottom of your heart. After taking a bite, all the tiredness disappears, there is warmth and satiety, which is the taste of happiness…
