Only Farmer Ground Half-white and whole wheat flours are used to make this traditional French bread. It is raised by a stiff levain rather than the liquid levain used in the other sourdough breads. The large size of the loaves contribute to their keeping quality but necessitate a long bake which results in a dark crust. For the Toasted Sesame, we add 20% of the flour weight in organic, un-hulled sesame seeds to the dough creating an intensely flavorful crumb and crust. Ingredients: Farmer Ground Half-White organic flour, water, Farmer Ground whole wheat flour, (Organic Un-hulled Sesame Seeds), Farmer Ground whole rye flour, natural leaven, sea salt.
