Salt Rising Bread is an Appalachian tradition that is now available for you to order online. We scoured the internet for local recipes and techniques so that we could bring the authentic flavors and aromas of Salt Rising Bread to you. This bread is traditionally made with a potato and corn meal starter, which captures wild bacteria that ferment the dough. The natural bacterial fermentation leads to a slightly cheesy aroma and flavor. For those who have never had this treat, we liken it to an asiago cheese bread. The loaf is yellow in color, dense, with a crusty exterior.
Salt Rising bread is not a light, fluffy bread as it is leavened with bacteria found on potatoes, and not yeast. This traditional bread will be crusty and dense with a tight crumb.
Salt Rising Bread is traditionally served toasted.
We generally bake off the bread on Monday evenings, and ship on Tuesdays. Orders placed by Monday night will generally be shipped the very next day. The shipping costs are what we are charged by the US Postal Service. There is little that we can do to offset the shipping charges.
We apologize, but for shipped products, we offer no refunds. If you receive a package that is damaged in shipping or never receive your package, you can file a claim with the USPS using your tracking number. You should take pictures if possible of the damaged packaging to support your claim.
