Hello everyone. Have been baking breads for 59 years and still learning. Found this blog today while looking for a way to salvage an old dough bowl I purchased at a yard sale some years ago. The bowl developed a crack and I'm hoping to save it as I love old items. Have two old rolling pins. One was given to me 59 years ago when an elderly lady was breaking up home and she asked if I could use it. Yep! Have use it exclusively all these years and it's like brand new. Rescued another similar one from a yard sale. Was wondering if dough can be raised in an old crock as I have several of those. I have made fermented cabbage(sauerkraut). Just love making bread though and have made gluten free bread as well. So happy to have found you.
