pan loaves

You can begin ordering on Jan. 8, for pickup on Jan. 14.

signature levain pan loaf (100% whole grain sourdough)

Our daily bread, and the foundation of our diet. We eat this bread every day for breakfast toast, for lunch sandwiches, and for dinner as toast with soups or stews. The long, cool-risen sourdough in this delicious and nutritious loaf gives the bread a flavor complexity and moistness (not to mention keeping quality) that you won’t find in a commercially yeasted dough—especially one with no added oil or sweetener.

ingredients: organic whole wheat flour, well water, sea salt, wild yeast (sourdough)

weight: 1 lb. 13 oz. | price: $6.00/loaf

Alaskan potato pan loaf (100% whole wheat sourdough)

What could possibly make our 100% whole wheat levain better? I love the complex, tangy flavor and the nice keeping quality already—it’s the bread I eat every day. But what about adding Alaskan potatoes to it?
This big beautiful pan loaf is basically the same bread as the levain, but with an added moistness and tenderness and keeping quality that comes from the potatoes. Great for toast, sandwiches, bruschetta, croutons…. you can use it with sweet or savory toppings. It’s the ultimate multi-purpose bread!

ingredients: organic whole wheat flour, well water, Alaskan potatoes, sea salt, wild yeast (sourdough)

spent grain pan loaf (100% whole grain sourdough)

This 100% whole wheat pan loaf is loaded with grains used for brewing beer at the Midnight Sun Brewery. These mixed grains still have plenty of flavor left in them even after the brewers are done with them. They add both a malty sweetness and lots of texture to our organic 100% whole wheat flour, and the flavor of the grains added will vary subtly, depending on the type of beer brewed. Whether you have resolved to eat more whole grains in 2009, you like the idea of reducing, reusing and recycling, or you just want a hearty and flavorful bread for breakfast toast and sandwiches, our spent grain bread will be sure to please!

ingredients: organic whole wheat flour, well water, spent grain (malted barley), honey, olive oil, sea salt, wild yeast (sourdough)

weight: 1 lb. 13 oz. | price: $6.00/loaf

flax seed pan loaf (100% whole grain sourdough)

This tasty loaf is packed with freshly-ground flax seeds (we grind it in a coffee grinder, a half-cup at a time, just before baking it), so it's full of healthy omega-3 fatty acids. The pumpernickel flour gives it a hearty taste, and the long-fermented sourdough provides a fantastic flavor and keeping quality. Try this loaf for toast or sandwiches--you'll love it!

ingredients: organic whole wheat flour, organic bread flour, well water, pumpernickel flour, flax seeds, honey, sea salt, wild yeast (sourdough)

weight: 1 lb. 13 oz. | price: $6.00/loaf

whole grain hearth loaves

You can begin ordering on Jan. 8, for pickup on Jan. 14.

toasted walnut hearth loaf (100% whole wheat sourdough)

Packed with huge chunks of rich, toasted walnuts, this loaf is unbelievably good as toast with a slice of cheese melting on top. It’s also great just by itself as breakfast toast, or drizzled with honey. The bread is made with 100% whole wheat, so a slice or two of breakfast toast will last you all morning.
And in addition to toast, you can use it for sandwiches or a hearty dinner bread with a bowl of soup.

ingredients: organic whole wheat flour, well water, toasted walnuts, olive oil, sea salt, wild yeast (sourdough)

weight: 1 lb. 4 oz. | price: $6.00/loaf

toasted seed hearth loaf (100% whole wheat sourdough)

As much as I love our regular 100% whole wheat levain, I have to admit that the toasted seed is maybe my favorite. This loaf has the added richness and toasted flavor of a variety of organic seeds! Flax, sesame, pumpkin, sunflower, and a little polenta... it's packed with good things!
And it’s just as versatile as our regular signature 100% whole wheat—you can use it for toast, sandwiches, or dinner bread—and it’s just as healthy, since it’s also made with 100% whole wheat. It’s wonderful sliced, toasted and dipped in olive oil and salt—just add a salad or a soup for a great meal any day!

ingredients: organic whole wheat flour, well water, stone ground coarse cornmeal, organic flax seeds, organic sesame seeds, organic pumpkin seeds, organic sunflower seeds, honey, sea salt, wild yeast (sourdough)

weight: 1 lb. 4 oz. | price: $6.00/loaf

dark rye with raisins hearth loaf (100% whole grain sourdough)

This beautiful black bread, dusted with flour and baked in a torpedo shape (an elongated oval) on the hearth, is probably different than any rye bread you’ve ever tasted. It’s definitely not light rye with caraway seeds, and you’re unlikely to want to make a pastrami sandwich with it. It contains both coffee and dark cocoa powder, which combine with the sourdough-rye starter to create a slight bitterness and intense flavor that contrasts beautifully with the sweetness of the raisins and molasses.
It’s out of this world good as breakfast toast, spread with a bit of butter (and maybe even a smear of honey). It’s also great with cheese. Then again, I love it without any topping at all… You’ll just have to try it yourself!

ingredients: well water, organic whole wheat flour, organic whole grain rye flour, organic raisins, molasses, coffee, cocoa powder, olive oil, sea salt, wild yeast (sourdough)

weight: 1 lb. 4 oz. | price: $6.00/loaf

60% whole grain hearth loaves

You can begin ordering on Jan. 8, for pickup on Jan. 14.

kalamata olive hearth loaf (60% whole wheat sourdough)

Our olive bread is so loaded with Greek olives that even when I’m cutting small pieces to share for samples, there is an olive in every bite. A little olive oil in the dough makes the crumb especially soft and luscious; it might just be the perfect dinner bread.
To reheat the bread and make the outside crusty again, just pop the unwrapped loaf in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes before you sit down to eat. Or you can just toast slices individually if you won’t be eating the whole loaf at once.

ingredients: organic whole wheat flour, organic unbleached bread flour, well water, kalamata olives, olive oil, sea salt, wild yeast (sourdough)

weight: 1 lb. 4 oz. | price: $7.00/loaf

fresh rosemary hearth loaf (60% whole grain sourdough)

Adding fresh rosemary to our hearth loaf gives it a savory herbal flavor that goes so well with lots of different foods. Decorated with leaf-shaped slashings on top, it’s quite beautiful, too. If you’re using it for a dinner bread, just heat the unwrapped loaf in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes to get a beautiful crisp crust on it before you sit down to eat!

ingredients: organic whole wheat flour, organic unbleached bread flour, well water, fresh rosemary, olive oil, sea salt, wild yeast

weight: 1 lb. 4 oz. | price: $6.00/loaf

Alaskan onion rye hearth loaf (65% whole wheat sourdough)

Here it is—finally a rye bread worthy of any Reuben sandwich you’d care to dream up… or a cheese sandwich, or a tomato sandwich, or an egg salad sandwich, for that matter! Even if you think you don’t like rye bread, try it first! It might be the caraway seeds in most commercial rye breads that you don’t like, or the sour flavor of some American-style rye.
We think you’ll be able to discover what rye actually tastes like in our bread, and we think you’ll love it! Because our loaves contain an especially high component of organic rye flour (45%), you’ll taste that the rye contributes a lovely cakey texture and a subtle grassy sweetness that is perfectly complemented by the onions. And the onions! We’re thrilled to be able to use Alaska-grown onions in the bread! We roast the onions briefly, just enough to soften them, so the sweet and savory onion morsels dissolve almost completely into the dough. The bread doesn’t have a strong onion flavor; it’s more of a savory complexity that becomes more noticeable after a day or two.

ingredients: well water, organic rye flour, organic whole wheat flour, organic unbleached bread flour, Alaskan onions, olive oil, sea salt, wild yeast (sourdough)

weight: 1 lb. 4 oz. | price: $7.00/loaf

Alaskan potato & chive hearth loaf (60% whole grain sourdough)

Speckled with little green flecks of chives and subtly flavored with toasted onion, this is the softest, most luscious bread we make, thanks to the addition of lots of freshly-baked Alaskan potatoes from the Valley! Potatoes make the dough incredibly soft and silky, and the baked bread is wonderfully tender, light and moist.
It’s wonderful as toast with a slice of cheese, or as sandwich bread for any savory filling. Try it with a dollop of hummus, or a smear of cream cheese topped with smoked salmon, red onion and capers!

ingredients: organic whole wheat flour, organic unbleached bread flour, well water, baked Alaskan potatoes, olive oil, sea salt, toasted onion, chives, wild yeast (sourdough)

weight: 1 lb. 4 oz. | price: $6.00/loaf

Parmesan cheese & roasted garlic hearth loaf (60% whole grain sourdough)

We're now using Parmesan cheese in this delicious bread, and in combination with loads of roasted garlic, it makes an incredibly savory and luscious treat. We pack lots of cheese into the loaves, so that when you heat the bread in the oven or the toaster, the cheese melts and it tastes like a cross between a toasted cheese sandwich and rich garlic bread. Give it a try!

ingredients: organic whole wheat flour, organic unbleached bread flour, well water, Cranberry Ridge Farms’ Gold Rush cheese, roasted garlic, olive oil, sea salt, wild yeast (sourdough)

weight: 1 lb. 4 oz. | price: $7.00/loaf

ingredients: organic whole wheat flour, organic bread flour, well water, organic raisins, toasted pecans, honey, sea salt, wild yeast (sourdough)

fruited almond holiday loaf (60% whole grain sourdough)

Have you ever eaten a hot cross bun at Easter time? Packed with fruits and toasted nuts, our fruited almond loaf is partially inspired by the rich hot cross buns my mom made when I was small. Our loaf, though, has neither eggs nor butter in it, making it a healthier choice—you can eat slices for breakfast, afternoon snacks or dessert and still feel virtuous!
The long action of the sourdough on the whole wheat flour gives the bread a flavor complexity and keeping quality that doesn’t require butter or eggs. And the bread is packed with dried fruit and scented with almond extract, further enhancing its moist and delicious flavor. We’ve included a combination of our favorite dried fruits: apricots, golden raisins, and dried cranberries. The colors are lovely, making it beautiful on a dessert plate as well as for your breakfast toast.

ingredients: organic whole wheat flour, organic unbleached bread flour, well water, dried apricots, golden raisins, dried sweetened cranberries, almonds, honey, olive oil, sea salt, vanilla, almond extract, wild yeast (sourdough)

weight: 1 lb. 4 oz. | price: $7.00/loaf

dark chocolate & cherry hearth loaf (100% whole grain sourdough)

We think this bread tastes even better than chocolate cake—and it doesn’t contain any butter, eggs, or dairy. But it’s packed with the important stuff: dark and rich gourmet cocoa powder, big hunks of dark chocolate, and dried cherries.
If you put a piece in the toaster for a minute or two, the chocolate chunks get all melty and luscious and you’ve just made yourself a little slice of nirvana.

ingredients: organic whole wheat flour, organic unbleached bread flour, well water, dark chocolate pieces, dried sour cherries, dark cocoa powder, honey, olive oil, sea salt, wild yeast (sourdough)

weight: 1 lb. 4 oz. | price: $7.00/loaf
