Horno, Earth ovens

While in New Mexico we noticed that all of the Native Americans had either one or two Hornos. These are beehive shaped adobe ovens. They use them to bake bread and just about everything else. LaVern has always had an interest in building one so after we got home we started researching alittle. Once again with the internet we have found thousands of web sights, videos and ideas. This is a picture of an earth oven which is probably what we will build as there isn't adobe in Iowa! We do, however have clay soil. I think it would be a perfect place to cook the Thanksgiving turkey!!
