Is it safe to bake in terracotta pots?

Then set your pots aside in a shaded place until they achieve the desired look, at least one month.
Why are my terracotta pots molding?
Turns out, the clay material that these pots are made from is porous and actually breathes. It allows the natural salts and minerals from our water, to seep through to the outside causing a white powdery build up on the outsides of the pot. This residue is not harmful and it can easily be removed.

Can you use Sharpies on terracotta?
