Gargantuan Boule

This is a crusty four pound country sourdough boule with stone-ground bran. This loaf has an incredibly sweet crust and superb crumb. This loaf ended up in the hands of a large family in need of assistance, they took the loaf home and toasted slices of it in the broiler of the oven, slathered it with butter & jelly and that was dinner….they ate the whole 4 pound loaf! We don’t sell bread we give it all away and stories like this make it all worthwhile.

“Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; and good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts.”James Beard (1903-1985)
