See the new cob oven at Antiquity Oaks

One of the new things you'll be able to see this year at Antiquity Oaks is our new cob oven. Cob has nothing to do with corn or corn cobs. It's an ancient building material made of clay and straw. 

To use the oven, we build a fire inside and let it burn for a couple of hours. That heats up the walls, floor and ceiling of the oven. Then we scoop out the coals, put the door on to let the heat equalize for half an hour or so, and then we put the food in the oven to bake. The oven is usually around 350 degrees, which is perfect for most baking. 

One time we built the fire with hickory wood from fallen branches around our farm, and then pushed the coals to the sides of the oven and put a pork roast in there. It tasted just like a hickory smoked ham!
