Navajo Flatbread:

Image may contain: food

Bread shortage?

This is the easiest kind of bread you can make. Costs pennies and can get you through these strange times, my family lived off these when the pickings were slim.

Navajo Flatbread:  Makes 6

2 cups flour

1 - 1 1/4cup of lukewarm water

1 table spoon baking powder

1 tsp kosher salt

1 table spoon oil/butter/shortening

Mix dry ingredients together and add most water, mix and add water until it has the consistency of tacky pizza dough.

Knead for a few minutes.

Let rest in greased bowl for 30- 60 minutes.

Divide into 6 pieces and roll out on floured surface thin. (Tortilla thickness)

Hear griddle to 350F.

Cook until golden brown spots and flip, cooking until done.

They can be made ahead and kept under a flour towel or frozen for later use.

Hello everyone. In addition to our regular distribution to stores we have decided to offer fresh bread pick up here at the bakery on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Ordering ahead, even a couple of days, is encouraged as it helps to plan how much to bake. We will however have a selection here and you can call ahead to see what’s available. We will also continue to be open for bagels on Tuesday evening from 5-7pm.

If you like you can drive up to the bakery entrance, give a little honk and we can bring products out to you. We accept payment via Venmo, Paypal and Square as well as cash(exact change would be helpful) or check.

Give us a call or text at 802-375-5250. If we don’t answer leave a message and we will call you right back with a confirmation.

Baguettes, Ciabatta and Pain au Levain will be available both days. On Tuesday we will also have East Street Wheat. On Thursday we will have Semolina Levain. Our breads freeze wonderfully if you are looking to stock up. Thanks and be well. Jed and Mandy Mayer.
