How to care for your sourdough
Sourdough lasts for several days due to the high hydration of the dough. Keep it in the paper bag it comes in for two days to keep the crustiness. Then transfer to a plastic bag to stop it drying out. Sourdough makes amazing toast. You can also revive the bread to its initial freshness after a few days by putting it in the oven for a few minutes
It also freezes very well, so if you buy a large loaf you can slice it and freeze half of it. You can take it out a slice at a time and toast it from frozen.

Why You’ll Love Us
I am a naturopath, interested in producing nutritious and healthy food. I have been experimenting with all of the heritage flours, Emmer, Einkorn, Khorasan, Maris Widgeon, Rye and Spelt. Sourdough is much kinder on the gut than modern yeasted wheat bread. The wild yeasts get to work on the carbohydrate and start breaking it down during the long fermentation stage. By the time it reaches the gut is is easy to digest. The wholegrain flour has a high nutritional content.
Individual sourdough requests may be able to be accommodated. Please contact me.

“Looks delicious and tastes even better!”
“Spelt loaf with ham and mustard so good”
Sea salt is used in all loaves, supporting UK supplier, Malden.
Distilled water is used in our bread because it is pure water, no chlorine, limescale etc which could taint the taste of the bread.
What is in our sourdough?
Organic heritage flour, sea salt, distilled water from our distiller. That is it! Unless of course we add organic seeds or nuts etc to add to our tasty breads!
