Any N.C. Home Bakers?

....who have gone through the Dept. of Agriculture certification process?

 

I know you can't use "acid" foods in your kitchen...but are their any other ingredients you've discovered you CAN'T use? Like, mustard is an acid but can you use it IN a recipe? Can you add beer to your bread?

 

Just curious if you've come across any.

HI, I got my certification in spring last year. If your kitchen is certified for baking bread, don't worry about those ingredients. I wouldn't !If you are using milk and eggs, you will be asked about your refrigerator. Are you selling your bread? I sell my bread at the farmers market in Brevard, NC.

Good luck! Barbara

Thank you! That's a relief!!

I do add butter into my recipe...but, I have installed a kitchen thermometer so I think I should be ok on the inspection.

YES. I hope to be selling soon. I'm in Charlotte and its almost IMPOSSIBLE to get into the farmers markets here. They only let a certain number of bakers in and they are very territorial. Sigh. Brevard is gorgeous!!!
