WHAT MAKES THIS BREAD UNIQUE? These round loaves and rolls are called Desem, the Flemish word for leaven. The Desem is made by fermenting whole wheat flour and water. Given the proper environment, "wild yeasts" break down the grain making it easily digestible. The gaseous by-product provides the leavening and mildly sour taste to the bread. -1 ' The loaves are baked in a uniquely designed wood-fired brick oven which gives the bread _ a special texture and flavor that cannot be duplicated, as well as utilizing a renewable resource. j$ The flours used are organic. They are sloneground and aged two to five days before using. The water is drawn froma local 150 foot well and the salt is unrefined seasaltfrom the Lima Corp. of France. The bakery is a community owned and supported non-profit Corporation. All profits are turned back to the bakery for further growth, educational endeavors, and development as a bakery. 310 N.
