A few points...

 

Freezes well and makes great toast!
Vegans can substitute sugar for honey. 

If you have any special requirements please ask a facilitator duriing the breadmaking session or contact us before you arrive.

"Tuesday's bread cooled in the fridge overnight, sliced on a heavy wooden board, cut with a sharp serrated bread saw.  First 2 slices toasted with lashings of butter, the rest placed in the freezer."
