Finishing Your Par Baked Loaf: If frozen, allow the loaf to thaw at room temperature in the original plastic bag.
Preheat your oven to 390 degrees and bake the loaf for 25-30 minutes.
The internal temperature of the finish baked loaf should be 205 degrees.
Blue Heaven Leaven is our signature bread. Combining organic flour with natural leaven (local wild yeast + beneficial bacteria) and over 72 hrs of fermentation, our Blue Heaven Leaven is a wonderfully balanced bread. It is easy to digest and deeply satisfying to eat. The long cold fermentation and the cold proofing techniques we employ bring out a complexity of flavor from the rye and wheat flours that we are particularly fond of. The long fermentation also makes the bread much more digestible due to the time allowed for the natural enzymes in the flours to do their work. This means that the bread is also healthier because of the increased availability of nutrients. Blue Heaven Leaven keeps especially well, again due to the natural leaven.
Storage of Par Baked Loaves: Par baked loaves can be refrigerated or, better yet, frozen until you are ready to bake them off.
Finishing Your Par Baked Loaf: If frozen, allow the loaf to thaw at room temperature in the original plastic bag. Preheat your oven to 390 degrees and bake the loaf for 25-30 minutes. The internal temperature of the finish baked loaf should be 205 degrees. Allow the loaf to cool for 1-2 hours before eating, if you can stand to wait that long!
OR, if you prefer not to bake your whole loaf, you can store in the refrigerator & slice and toast as you go along.Storage of Baked Loaves: Finish baked loaves should be stored in paper at room temperature if the loaf will be consumed within a day after it is baked. Otherwise it keeps well (as long as a week at a cool room temp) in plastic. You will probably notice that naturally leavened bread is much slower to mold than typical fast-processed breads!
