Mild, but still with plenty of flavor and a beautiful crust. It is named in honor of the old town common in Waitsfield Vt.
An uncommon "common" bread that goes equally well with PB & J or with extra-virgin olive oil.
This bread comes in a paper bag to preserve the crust. After cutting, place sliced side down on a cutting board, uncovered, and it will stay fresh for days. If not sliced for several days, you can refresh the loaf by running it under cool water, then heat in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.
