Icelanders have devised a way to cook bread underground. Icelandic rye bread is baked using geothermal energy. The abundance of magma and lava present beneath Iceland’s surface allows the bread to cook thoroughly, albeit rather slowly. They seal the ingredients in a pot and bury it near a geothermal hot spot, usually near a hot spring or volcano. The steam emitted from the vulcanized earth beneath iceland cooks the bread in approximately 12 hours.
