Flour sack towels
Okay, so I am new to this site and I have a question I figured I would put out there.
When baking high hydration breads (ciabatta, sour9, etc) O have noticed that a lot use the banneton or proofing baskets. Some have a cloth in them and I have seen them use them in the oven.
My question is, flour sack towels are great for many uses in the kitchen. Can these be used in the oven? My first initial thought was no way. I fear it catching on fire or whatnot. But then I saw the cloth in these baskets are being put in the oven. So I figured why not? But figured I would ask more seasoned bakers first.
