One of my long planned outside projects is to build an earth oven. Below is a great example of this type of oven from the website www.karuna.org.uk.
Lots of snow to melt yet at our place so I’m still at the daydreaming and planning stages. First step is to figure out where I can get clay soil. I know there’s some around the area because the fill we got a couple summer’s back for landscaping had lots of clay in it. We might even have some on our property but I probably won’t be able to dig around to find it for a few weeks. We’ve got loads of rock so won’t have any trouble with materials for the foundation. Straw and sand are easy to come by too.
If anyone knows of where I can dig up clay soil in the Almonte area let me know!
Keep checking back over the next few months to watch our building progress…and get recipes from the pizza party that will follow!
