Baking Fruit Pies in a Deck Oven
My husband and I are about to start a small bakery. We own an apple and peach orchard and I will be primarily making pies and turnovers(to start out) and maybe branching into some other things centering around our fruit. Here's the problem. After doing some research I decided that I wanted to buy a deck oven since it would most duplicate my oven at home and I was under the impression that deck ovens do a nice job on baked goods. We bought a used gas Baker's Pride deck oven with a stone hearth.
I am starting to doubt myself in a big way. Will this work for pies? Will the stone burn my pies on the bottom? We haven't installed the oven yet since we'll only be baking pies once peaches are in season, so I can't try it out.
Thanks for your input!
