Volcano Bread?

by sikbitz

Rúgbrauð is an Icelandic straight rye bread. It is traditionally baked in a pot or steamed in special wooden casks by burying it in the ground near a hot spring, in which case it is known as hverabrauð or “hot-spring-bread”

Every time I come across something like this I often wonder what must have gone through the first persons head when they decided to give it a try.

Did they hurt themselves in the process?

Was it a complete and total accident?

Regardless this looks like a totally metal way to bake some bread!
