A Loaf for Saint Patrick

We are pretty sure that Saint Patrick never gulped green beer, but each March 17th we celebrate the patron saint of Ireland with feasts, parties and maybe a drink or three. Along with your corned beef and cabbage we humbly offer up our Irish Soda Bread.

Although many variations exist, we think our soda bread is a more traditional version. Our recipe uses organic unbleached wheat flour, buttermilk, butter and sea salt to achieve a golden crust and soft, creamy crumb. We add a sprinkling of currants and a cross cut in the top “to let the fairies out,” as folklore suggests. But don’t just take our word for it. One of the tasters from a Seattle Weekly review, who happened to be from Ireland, “declared this the most authentic recipe, comparable to what she bought on the streets of Galway and Dublin.”

You can find our Irish Soda Bread now through March 20 in our cafes and most grocery stores that carry our breads.

Whether you are cooking a St. Patty’s Day Irish dinner or just want something different for breakfast or brunch, give our Irish Soda Bread a try and let us know what you think.
