La Cloche - Seasoning
I recently purchased a La Cloche dome earthware pot to make bread in. It makes amazing bread so far except the that the bottom is not as consistent as the rest of the loaf. It is usually very hard and brittle and in some cases it turns out burnt, but the rest of the loaf is fine. I did season it with a light sheen of oil like the directions said and now the bottom is a dark brown or black.
Any suggestions, i tried cleaning it but the black stuff is not coming off. is my oven too hot? should i re-season again?
Help....i love making bread with this thing but want it PERFECT.
