Farmer’s Market Season

Farmer’s Market Season

HELLO BREAD LOVERS OF CNY!

With summer finally upon us, it is time to turn your weekly grocery list into a visit to your local Farmer’s Market! There are so many reason to support your local food system. Shopping for your food at a local farmers market is part of the creation of a healthy lifestyle.   You will gain a relationship and perhaps a friendship with the producer of your food while fostering stewardship for the environment.  Add that to the support of the local economy and agriculture, all the while bringing freshness, quality and flavor to your families table

Utica Bread is proud to be a part of the local food economy.  We are excited to get out and meet our friends and neighbors this summer at a few of our great local markets!

Whole Wheat Levain

Whole Wheat Levain

Hello BREAD LOVERS OF CNY!

Lots of great things happening at Utica Bread – one of which is the recently released Whole Wheat Levain!

Our Whole Wheat flour is sourced from Farmer Ground Flour in Trumansberg, NY. At Farner Ground, the wheat is stone ground and unrefined. A grain of wheat, or kernal, is composed of the bran, endosperm and germ. They key difference between white and whole wheat flour is the removal of bran and germ from the kernal in white flour. What’s left is endosperm, which has the highest starch content. Keeping the whole kernel adds complexity, flavor and allows you to produce a healthier flour.

Check out the link below where we sit down with our friends at Farmer Ground and talk about their process and flour. 

So I URGE you to come check out our Whole Wheat Levain! It has become my morning staple; toasted with blueberry-ginger jam. I hope we can make it a morning staple for you as well.

Cheers!
