Cultured Bread

Sourdough Batard

Hello Pie Lovers,

I want to drop this line to introduce you to some deliciousness headed your way.  There are no links to purchase as none of this is available, yet. It's meant to inform for now.  Expect a few more emails in the next weeks to fill in the details.

Sourdough by Sweetcie Pie is coming.  It will finally be available for purchase in September. The bread will go on sale  pop up style, along with the pies.  Check out the Happenings below for the September dates.  

"Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; and good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts." ~ James Beard

Given that my mom came from Japan, rice was a constant in our diet growing up.  Even so, every morning she had a cup of coffee and one or two slices of toast with butter and strawberry jam while reading the Rafu Shimpo (a daily LA newspaper in Japanese).  Here is a trick I learned from watching her.  She always buttered her toast after it cooled.  She enjoyed the creaminess of the butter layer on top of the toast.  Don't let the butter melt and soak into the bread, unless that's what you're going for.

Experiences like this make me realize that bread can sustain for me a group of subscription customers more easily than just pie alone.  Someday, I'd like to move toward selling to a subscription base family, or community supported bakery model.

Now, pie will always be the heart and soul of Sweetcie Pie.  Pie will always be the 'bread and butter' so to speak.  However, this sourdough has become a part of my life and it can't be ignored.  I eat it every day.  Hubby asks for it.  Kids take it home with them.  It had to be put on the Sweetcie Pie menu. 

I feed and nurture the starter every day to make sure it's strong and tasting just right, so that it will make the most delicious loaf.   A percentage of local whole grain and fresh milled spelt add even more flavors.  Yes, I now own a grain mill which services both pies and bread.

Look for Fruit Puffs in September, too!
Remember, these are best eaten on the day of pick up.
