Issue #117

Hello sourdough fans!

You can start ordering NOW to pick up your bread on Wednesday, April 13.

This is our last bake until we start baking for the Saturday South Anchorage Farmers Market on June 11, so stock up on what you need and pop some bread in the freezer if you need to. Check out the long-term baking schedule for details:

Here’s what we’re baking for Wednesday, April 13. (Please order by Sunday, April 10.)

Pan loaves will be our ALASKAN POTATO sourdough and SPENT GRAIN sourdough.

Savory hearth loaves will be the KALAMATA OLIVE sourdough and the TOASTED WALNUT sourdough. The toasted walnut loaves are loaded with nuts, and make delightful breakfast toast and slices of bread with cheese, and with soups and salads. 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), and makes great dinner bread and sandwiches.

The sweet loaf will be the FRUITED ALMOND sourdough, which is packed with toasted almonds, apricots, cranberries and golden raisins. It’s great for breakfast and afternoon snacks, and works great in place of an energy bar when you’re out enjoying the snow and/or the sunshine!

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 come pick up your bread, you can pay by cash or check.
