Kat just texted that her yoghurt batch was a success. She put it in the clay oven last night after a whole days firing. Initially a bit concerned that it was too hot this is her comment: 'OMG it actually worked, it's thick, creamy and smoky!' I guess it's Elsa's breakfast this morning.

Liz was already on site at 9am this morning getting the oven ready for her vegetable casserole. I brought some sourdough bread that had been raising over night. She fired the oven for about 2 hours before both casserole and bread went in together. Only took 30 min to get ready. Delicious taste and the bread had a beautiful crust. Should think we'll carry on firing it up on workdays so bring your dishes to cook! Lots can go in together and it's good to make proper use of the whole cycle of heat.

It stayed in the oven for another two and a half hour in the end! Not because it needed it but because I was waiting for everyone to come back from the festival. In the end I think it could easily have come out after three hours.
The meat was tender, coming of the bone like you wouldn't believe.
So the oven works; next challenge is to fit three pots in the oven.
