DO they use the wood fired Adobe ovens like they do at Acoma.  Those things produce amazing bread.  Even better when one of those old ladies is trying to outdo a younger one to show her she has a lot more to learn. mmmmmmmm......brreeaadd

Yes, the baking is done in an horno, the Spanish word for oven. It is spheroidal and of adobe with a small hole near the top acting as a simple flue. The horno has a flat floored bottom and a small entry on one side. A fire is built within and when deemed hot enough, the floor ash is dragged out with clean, wet rags on the ends of reaching sticks. The loaves are inserted and withdrawn when baked, with wooden peels.
