    Bitterroot, I had the same idea tonight - a big pot of soup.

    A cam strap came in handy for critter proofing it when I put it on the back porch to cool.

    Actually, the two combined make for perfection in a cold day fishing or hunting (That is, stew and bread made in a dutch oven). :)

    mind sharing the recipe for the habanero cauliflower? That looks aawesome!

    What is to the left in the first pic...that looks good too.

    Was the cauliflower fermented?

    How do you like your Harsch croc?

    I'm hungry now for some cali mix.

    Big E,

    In the first pic from L to R is Habanero Cauliflower, Pickled eggs, Apple butter. The Habanero cauliflower was not fermented but processed in a boiling water canner. It's awesome!
    The second pic is a jar of refrigerator pickled veggies. No processing in a canner but must me kept in the fridge.

    I crack open my crock for the first time today. Hopefully all went well and I'll have my first batch of lactic acid fermented sauerkraut. Of course, I will post the results!

    Dutch oven bread is easy and has a terrific wow factor when we have guests over. My sister, who is a pastry chef, was even impressed.

    Best bread I've ever made. Almost foolproof.
    And easy. Slicing some now for french toast.
    Yowzerz!
