Bread can generally be baked in any pan, sourdough is no exception to this. Baking it in a covered dutch oven seals in moisture and keeps the crust from hardening, allowing maximum oven spring. You can achieve a similar effect by putting a pan of boiling water in the bottom of your oven for the first half of baking. There's no reason you can't use a loaf ...

curcumin (the colour compound in turmeric) is broken down by UV light. If the stain is the main issue here, leaving the mortar outside where it can receive sunlight directly (without going through a glass window) may be enough

In addition to @GdD's answer, using pan of boiling water you can even bake the bread on a baking tray (or a pizza stone if you have one). Make sure the bread is shaped well to avoid it spreading too much.

It is not typical for the heating to be that uneven in a slow cooker, it sounds like it is broken. If it's less than a year old send it back and get a warranty replacement! If it's not under warranty if it was me I'd take it apart and fix it if I could, they aren't very complicated. I'd either fix it or replace it rather than try to use it because one of ...

Any pot with lid will work as well or better than a dutch oven. As long as it can hold the dough and is oven-safe (no plastic parts, but almost all glass lids are oven-safe). There are a lot of myths in baking. The hot dutch oven myth is one of the most persistent. In reality you can use any lidded pot (no need to preheat it) and you can even start baking ...

I did this same thing, and came across this post, and successfully got it out without damaging either jar. I did same as OG poster - placed all in freezer so water in inside jar froze (obviously would need to be filled w/ water in first place, which mine was as I was also weighting down sauerkraut...). Removed from freezer, let sit at room temp a while, then ...
