ok, ya wanna know a secret? this is actually my favorite bread, the bread that i eat everyday, the bread that i take with me when i'm headed out to the woods for an adventure on a river in the middle of the California wilderness. we haven't been able to make enough of it to supply the demand, but we just did a big ol' switcheroo to the way we do things, and so now i would like to cordially offer it up to you.
what is this bread, you may ponder???
it's a rye bread. but not the type of rye bread that is light and fluffy and filled with caraway seeds. no no, this is nothing like that. it is 100% stone ground whole grain rye, with a bunch of toasted sunflower and sesame seeds, flax seeds, and stone ground corn meal. like all of our bread, it's naturally leavened/made with a sourdough starter. many folks who have sensitivity to wheat/gluten/bread have told me that this bread doesn't cause them any trouble, but this is in no way a promise that it will cure what ails you.
this bread will keep well for a week, left on your kitchen table, with the cut side facing down. it will also keep for a week in your backpack while traipsing through the mountains. in fact, that's its favorite place to be, so next time you're headed out please invite it along.
I'm Josey Baker. And yes, that is my real last name. I bake bread. No commercial yeast in my breads, just that good wild stuff, otherwise known as "sourdough." And yup, all of my flour is organic. Read more
