"Curing" terracotta pots for cooking

Scones, breadrolls and (cheesecloth-lined) pashka.

Have read several methods. Don't want pots imparting soap into the food if can be avoided.

Also, wiping with oil to make "sort of" non-stick would be good.

Obviously, the terracotta pots will be new and unused.

Btw, for a pashka, "inch"/"cm"_wise, what diameter would an 8 cup pot be do you think? (2 litres)

Many thanks. Happy Easter/Passover/Holidays to you all.

Maree.

I think I cured mine by leaving them in a bath of water all night... I seem to remember that was what I was told to do .... never had any problems with them!

Re: "Curing" terracotta pots for cooking

Hi. Don't think we've met before. Thank you for your response. Have read some where the process goes on "forever"- in and out of the oven, oiling several times.

The easier the better!!! Nice to meet you!

Maree.
