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!
