This Week’s Bakery Bulletin
Thursday, May 13, 2010
For May 19, we’ll be baking our pan loaves with Alaskan ingredients: the ALASKAN BARLEY sourdough pan loaves, filled with grain from our very own Delta Junction. We’re also baking my favorite basic bread, the ALASKAN BAKED POTATO sourdough pan loaf. I love its moistness and great keeping quality!
For hearth loaves, look for our ONION RYE sourdough bread, which is wonderful with cheese, for sandwiches, and with soups and salads. We’ll also have our TOASTED WALNUT loaves, full-flavored with 100% whole wheat, and rich and nutty from the walnuts.
Our sweet loaf this week is the FRUITED ALMOND sourdough loaf! Packed with golden raisins, dried cranberries, dried apricots, and toasted almonds, and scented with almond extract, slices of this loaf need neither butter nor jam… they are so rich and delicious (but healthy, too!) that they are great for afternoon treats or desserts—or even as a snack on a long run or bike ride!
If you’ve never ordered bread through the website, you’ll click on the “register now” link, pick a username and password, and enter your information (name, email, and phone numbers). Then you can place your order!
If you’d like a weekly email reminder to order bread, and to know about the bread flavors we’ll be baking, sign up for my weekly bakery bulletin (see the sidebar on the left). Below, you’ll find a list of breads available for order this week, for pickup next Wednesday.
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 you order the bread, you can choose to “pay when you pick up your bread,” or you can pay via PayPal. By all means, use PayPal if you prefer—but I’m even happier to get your checks or cash when you come pick up your bread.
