Hello, and welcome to DC.

I’ve never heard of bread in a jar. Could you post a recipe or a link? It sounds interesting!

Welcome to the forum!

With all of the bread I have made, and all the bread books I have, I had never seen a reference to this, either. The only jar I could imagine baking it in would be the tapered pint mason jar (also ok for freezing, for the same reason), otherwise the jars would break, if the bread pressed into the neck. When I googled "bread in a jar" that's what I found!

What's the purpose of this type of bread? I bake in all sizes of cans - many of the coffee cans are no longer available - when I want round loaves, for certain lunch meats.

I used to use pyrex loaf pans, and I remember that the bread browned faster, so I had to reduce the oven heat by 25°, so they would bake through, before getting too browned. However, I don't recall the crust being "spotty" in the glass pans.

I never heard of it either, so I asked my friend, Mr. Google. He doesn't think it's a good idea.

I'll stick with Dutch oven bread.

I'd like to know, too. I make bread regularly; I don't see any advantage to making it in a jar.

Have you made Dutch oven bread? Even my first attempt was a success (and I'm not a baker), and I have never had a failure.

Try baking them in a water bath.
