Organic Sourdough Rye & Flax Seed Bread

1.5 lb loaf

Please consider supporting this immigrant-owned company; they were hit very hard by the flooding in downtown Barre, Vt.
This handcrafted loaf is made with 60% whole grain rye flour. The only leavening agent is their sourdough starter, and the dough is made over the course of 48 hours through a long, cold fermentation process, then baked in a wood fired oven.

Storage Tips

It is not recommend to store your bread in the refrigerator; rather, the best two options to keep your loaves fresh, tasty and healthy:
1. FRESH LOAF.If you consume your fresh loaf within a day or two, you can store it in a paper bag that is slid in a plastic bag, kept slightly open. A paper bag ensures a layer to avoid direct contact of your bread with plastic, which can lead to dampness and molding.After cutting a few slices you can turn it open end down to keep the cut side fresh.If you forget and leave it for a long time, the open side of a sourdough bread will form a protective seal of sorts. So, if you come home and find that your bread is still exposed on the cutting board with a dry end, do not rush throw it away. Just take a knife and cut a thin slice of the dry end and you will see that your bread in fact is still fresh.
2. FREEZINGThe most important rule is to freeze it on the day it was baked while it still holds all the moisture needed to freeze and stay fresh when defrosted.You can freeze even a half or a quarter of your loaf. Just pack it for the freezer the same way mentioned above for the daily storage.To defrost, take your loaf from the freezer 2-3 hours (depending on the size of the loaf) before your planned meal or on the evening the day before and just leave it in the same wrapping on the kitchen counter to let it come to a room temperature. It will be like the fresh bread you bought some time ago.

Delicious bread. I was happy to enjoy the health benefits of rye bread and the taste- although it's not too strong. The bread is great for toasting or sandwiches which come out perfectly small sized. I usually get a multigrain/wheat bread and this was a great change. I'll definitely buy it again. I also appreciate the storage instructions here

Excellent bread. A nice tight crumb, suitable for buttered toast or sandwiches, but not too dense. Pleasantly sour rye taste. I will be ordering this again.
