or pehaps tell you who does, Clarks were quite willing to sell it to the public.......

I looked up sultarnex and hardly found any info.  I assume that it would be hard to find in the US.  I have been promising to make malt loaf for my British husband, so do you know a way that I could do it with ingredients found here?  I'd love to follow your recipe but I'm just not sure that it is possible!  I'd be very open to suggestions of substitutions if you have any ideas.


Thanks a lot,


Summer

Qahtan, even if wessexmill isn't close to you, they may well do mail order. I buy some of my flours from Shipton Mill and have found the cost reasonable. In fact, I usually try to buy enough at a time to get free delivery. It may help you...

 The only way I would have been able to get Sultarnex sent to me here in Southern Ontario was if I would have sorta gone int business.


 we didn't get into the nitty gritty but I wasn't interested in that.


 As  I said earlier I did bring some Sultarnex back to Canada with me from my last trip, but that was just enough for my own use.


As for a recipe without Sultarnex and trying to make malt loaf with out it, I have never had any luck, and believe me I have tried many many ways, and every recipe you see say's it is the one,  it is never the one I have been looking for.  


It's a bit like Bermaline, another specialized loaf from a long time ago. I have tried to duplicate it with no luck..


The last Bermaline loaf was from Selfridges bakery, in Oxford Street, London uk. and there it was only sold after 2.00pm......  so sorry I can't help you. qahtan

Well Sultarnex will just have to be one more thing that I'll be bringing back home from our England trip next month.  I'm glad that you let me know that it is a must.  I'm sure my husband will be able to tell, having grown up with it.
