The CSA starts in only 2 weeks and we have added a new CSA pickup location convenient to our downtown customers! This is the only Thursday pickup location, and also the only location where we can accept SNAP as payment for the CSA. A big thanks to the Lynchburg Community Market for partnering with us on this.
Bread for a Farm-sized Appetite
You may have noticed we are baking more 2 pound+ loaves these days. These are fun to make, more labor efficient, and without a doubt more aesthetically pleasing at the market display! Large loaves also create flavor and texture you just don’t get in a smaller load. If they seem too big for you, you can always put half in a ziploc and freeze it for next week.
This week we are featuring Pa de Pagès. Catalan for “farmer’s bread,” and pronounced “pah deh pah-HACE,” this is the common sourdough baked and consumed in Catalonia, the northeast region of Spain. Our version is made with sifted wheat flour from Deep Roots Milling and shaped into large 1-kilogram boules.
This is a crusty unsliced loaf with a characteristically spongy interior. Slicing tip for any large, crusty loaf: cut the loaf in half first. Then place a half-loaf face down on the cutting board and slice from the crusty corner of the loaf downward.
