Any GOOD salt-rising bread available?
I'm not a baker and am looking for a source of good (to my taste :-) salt-rising bread. I grew up with our family getting this great bread-for-toast from the local commercial bakery when they made it every Friday night. I've read the fine website about this bread at http://home.comcast.net/~petsonk . I have a list of places that supposedly make it that includes those on that site and also those I've culled from the internet. I've ordered the bread from several of the places but only one has been similar in intensity of flavor and aroma and also density that I remember. Sadly, that place, Lawson's Goodies Bakery in Leslie, Michigan, closed a few or several years ago. The others I've tried have been sadly lacking and I finally got tired of ordering and receiving loaves of bread that I didn't want to eat.
Does anyone know of a source of really good salt-rising bread, which means a quite dense bread with that distinctive cheesy flavor and an aroma that fills the house when you toast it?
If anyone wants, I'd be happy to post my list of sources along with my notes from the ones I've tried.
