Issue #134

Hello, sourdough fans!

You can start ordering NOW to pick up your bread on Wednesday, January 24th!

Please note that my wonderful programmer has made a few changes to the website, to hopefully make completing the ordering process easier. Make sure you click the correct pickup location button when you order.

Because of the three-day fermentation of the sourdough, the bread is a great keeper. It freezes and thaws beautifully, and stays fresh on your counter for at least a week. If you’ll be out of town on a pickup day, just give me a call and we can try and arrange a different plan for your bread pickup. (907) 748-3712.

See our long-term baking schedule on the website for future dates and loaves.

Our pickup locations are the same as last year (see details below). Thank you so much to both Side Street Espresso and Inspire Physical Therapy for giving us a place to deliver our bread.

Here’s what we’re baking for Wednesday, January 24th (please order by Sunday, January 21st):

Savory hearth loaves will be the KALAMATA OLIVE sourdough and the TOASTED SEED sourdough loaves. The olive bread is a little lighter than our other breads, since it is only 60% whole grain (the other 40% is organic bread flour). The seed bread, loaded with rich and savory seeds, makes wonderful toast, and it’s fantastic with cheese!

Sweet loaves will be the RAISIN & TOASTED PECAN sourdough. I have to admit that these are my favorite sweet loaves, especially toasted and with a little butter on top. I love a slice for breakfast, or for an afternoon snack. Not as rich or sweet as the other sweet loaves that we baked in December, these loaves are perfect for January: a refreshing start to the new year!

The pan loaves will be our signature LEVAIN (100% whole wheat sourdough) and the ever-popular SPENT GRAIN sourdough.

ANNOYING PASSWORDS: Have you had to reset your password through the website and now it’s stuck on something awful like Kq8B2j? I’m so sorry that my website doesn’t allow you to customize your own password, but I can change it for you. Please just .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)  or call me (907.748.3712) and let me know, and I can change it to something easy to remember, or to a password of your choice.

THE BREAD ORDERING DEADLINE
