Vermont bread story on US National Public Radio

August 21, 2014 - 1:33pm -- 108 breads

NPR story about a wood-fired oven, a sourdough starter, a couple who is retiring (he's 90 and she's 73) and baking bread for a Vermont farmers market for 37 years. This is so sweet on so many levels. I want to inherit this oven and the schmatte technology. So great a read (or click and listen to the story).

Bread with peaches in it

August 5, 2014 - 5:16am -- mmelaprof

We were traveling on a divided highway traveling east to west in Vermont and found a lovely country store that sold maple syrup and bread with peaches in it, among many other delicious items.  I have been searching for bread with peaches in it for years.

Does anyone have a recipe for yeast bread that contains peaches?

when its done and I smell my loaf warm or cold it does not have that smell like a loaf you would get from a bakery.

why is that!  it tastes fine and im happy with my results. but just wondering why it don't have that smell.

scaling of recipes

July 19, 2014 - 10:25pm -- Nickdaugherty

hey everyone,

quick question here.  is scaling a recipe just a matter of percentages if you keep the measurements in weights?

example: if i have a recipe for 3 loafs of bread can.  can i scale up to a 100 loaf recipe so long as i use the same percentage ratio from the 3 loaf recipe.

any an all information would be greatly appreciated as i want to be as knowledgeable in this area as possible.  don't hesitate to post any other forum threads or websites with descriptive entries as i can also do my own research.

Thanks everyone
