I have a friend at work that keeps telling me about the Sheepherder bread that his dad use to make when he was a youngster. I had looked for recipes but there really wasn't a definitive answer. When I made the light rye and took it to work he said that reminded him of Sheepherder Bread. He also said that his dad cooked it over a fire in a pan. I looked around again at the Sheepherder Bread recipes and found one with sourdough and also had some rye in it. The recipe also had some oil and baking soda in it. I made some calculated guesses and came up with a dough and then cooked it in my Dutch Oven. This is what I ended up with.
This is a really easy way to make bread. I'm curious how it tastes and what the crumb looks like. I'm thinking of getting a rectangular Dutch Oven if this works out well.
