Our Sourdough is bread worth savoring. The even and slightly cracking crust has a perfect crunch.

Country Sourdough comes in a sandwich-pleasing shape and has a slightly more savory note than the original.

Sourdough is a dense bread, which is made from a starter (culture) that dates to 1993, is moist with the subtle sour taste that may remind you of San Francisco. Be sure to slow down and take a moment to enjoy the aroma. Try it next to your favorite bowl of hot or cold soup.

More recently we've added a Country Sourdough. This bread adds a little yeast to add volume to the bread. We've reduced the subtle sour taste so it adds more savory notes to the taste. Baked in a classic pan loaf shape it makes a perfect sandwich bread.

Ham and Pear Crisp

Adapted from Roadfood Sandwiches by Jane and Michael stern, Hellís Kitchen, Minneapolis, Minnesota

1 small can 15 ounces sliced pears in syrup
8 slices Breadsmith Sourdough
Spiced butter (recipe follows)
4 slices Swiss cheese
1 ľ pounds shaved ham
4 slices Fontina cheese

Drain the pears in a small strainer. Slice the pears into thin slivers and set aside. Lay out the 8 slices bread and spread each with a thin layer of the spiced butter, using only about half the butter. On each of the 4 slices, place 1 slice of Swiss cheese and about Ĺ inch pile of shaved ham. Divide the sliced pears among the 4 sandwiches and top each with a slice of the Fontina cheese. Place the remaining slices of sourdough on top, and press together gently to compress the sandwiches. Spread the remaining spiced butter on the outside of the bread.

Heat a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Place the sandwiches in the skillet in batches if necessary and cook for approximately 7 minutes or until brown and crisp. Using a spatula, turn the sandwiches over and cook for another 7 minutes. For ease of eating, cut each sandwich in half on the diagonal.
