Back at the Thursday Market and Introducing Brianna!
Thursday, June 14 marks the first day of the Laramie Thursday Market, and we are excited to be on hand for another year with great fresh breads, starting at 3 pm at Undine Park. Plan to arrive early for the best selection of artisan loaves. Our menu is below!
Tomorrow, we will also have an opportunity to introduce you to a fabulous new baker who has joined our crew this year. Brianna is our inaugural apprentice baker, and she will be on hand to assist Blake in answering questions and selling breads tomorrow at the market.
As you may know, we set Solstice Acre up to be a nonprofit to benefit the local community. This spring we started a small apprentice baker program, in partnership with Wyoming's Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, to give young people with disabilities a launching point to learn new skills in preparation for future employment. Brianna is our first apprentice, and she has been an amazing addition to our team. Be sure to stop by and say "hello."
Now, onto the menu:
Roasted Potato Bread
Later in the season, this bread features potatoes picked directly from our back garden. Alas, it's too early for Solstice Acre potatoes, but not to try this white bread made moist through adding roasted potatoes to the dough.
No two loaves of these ciabatta-like loaves are the same. Light as a pillow, made with organic white wheat.
Slow fermented levain yeast blend.
100% levain leavened. Blend of organic white flour, whole milled wheat, and whole milled rye.
Whole milled wheat, sunflower, flax, pumpkin, homegrown corn, and oats.
