This Week’s Bakery Bulletin
Thursday, April 24, 2014
Thank you SO MUCH for your patience while I worked on advocating for more funding for Alaska’s public schools! The Legislature has finally made its final decision, and while I’m not happy that the final number means continued cuts to our teachers in our schools for the next three years, I’m relieved that the session is over and we can move forward.
For pickup on Wednesday, April 30 (please order by Sunday, April 27):
Pan loaves will be ALASKAN POTATO sourdough, with Palmer potatoes providing a lovely moist texture to the regular 100% whole wheat sourdough bread. We will also be baking the ever-popular SPENT GRAIN sourdough, livened up with barley groats that have been used in Midnight Sun Brewery’s beer-making process. And best of all, we’ll have the FLAX SEED sourdough, loaded with freshly-ground flax seeds.
The savory hearth loaf will be the FRESH ROSEMARY sourdough; it’s great for dinner bread and sandwiches.
The sweet hearth loaf will be RAISIN & TOASTED PECAN sourdough, which is wonderful for breakfast, but also for mid-afternoon snacks!
We will be baking once or twice a month through the winter, so stock up and pop some bread in the freezer if you’d like. The bread really does freeze and thaw well, because of its three-day cool fermentation. Click on our long term baking schedule to see what we’ll be baking later this winter! Sign up for our reminder email if you’d like (see the left margin), and you’ll get an email when it’s time to order for the next bake.
the bread ordering deadline
You’ll need to order your bread by MIDNIGHT on Sunday so we have time to plan our bake, feed our sourdough, and pre-ferment the dough! When youcome pick up your bread, you can pay by cash or check.
