Mottled Appearance

September 16, 2012 - 3:07pm -- ralphyo

Below are pictures of the upper crust and bottom crust of a rustic bread I've been making recently.  These pictures illustrate a problem I've been fighting for some time with many of my breads.  I can't figure out why the upper crust has a mottled appearance versus being nicely browned.  The bottom crust which was on parchment paper against the baking stone shows no such issue.
