Our flagship bread, with a distinctive appearance, flavor and aroma. This chewy and dense bread comes in two sizes, 1.75 lb. and 4.50 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
