Our flagship bread, with a distinctive appearance, flavor and aroma. This chewy and dense bread comes in two sizes, 1.75 lb. and 5 lb., and, in the true tradition of country bread, is put into large wooden baskets to proof. A 1/4 inch thick chestnut-colored crust keeps the bread tasty for a good week. Loaves are made with a special organic germ-restored wheat flour prepared for us by a seventh-generation miller in North Carolina, which gives the bread a darker color than any of our other wheat loaves. In keeping with tradition, a natural sour starter is used to attract wild yeasts in the air. Many prefer this bread when it’s a day or two old. Delicious dipped in soup.
Ingredients: Organic Unbleached White Flour (Germ replenished), Unbromated Unbleached Wheat Flour, Organic Whole Wheat Flour, Water, Sea Salt, Organic Cornmeal
