So, I made some sweet lookin' bread dough. You know, Sunday morning...as good a morning as any for a homemade loaf...
I took my terra cotta pot (with lid on), threw it in a cold oven and set the heat to 450. An hour later, I removed it - fully prepared to lay the dough in and wait patiently for a little slice of heaven. Much to my surprise, my girlfriend decided said pot would be a convenient, out of the way storage place for a few things. One of those of "things" happened to be a bag of dried beans in a ziplock bag.
Needless to say, the bag, along with some other plastic melted and seems to have stuck itself stubbornly to the pot. Some of it flakes off. Some doesn't want to budge. Some is so thin, it's like it has now become part of the pot.
Before I take a hammer and chisel to it, I figured I would throw this out the to the community for some advice. Plus, I paid only $4.00 for this bad-boy (or girl, I'm not quite sure) at a local discount store. It's my first clay pot ever. This is only the second time I [attempted] to use it and I fear all is lost. Whoa is me : (
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
