This is our newest acquisition. I received an email from the UK describing a Polish culture that included one word, PUMPERNICKLE, that convinced me it might produce a pumpernickel sourdough which is something I have never seen a sourdough culture do. After just two weeks I knew it was something really special. So will you. Check the Recipe Section to see more about using it.
The email was from Alan Urdaibay, an English teacher in Devon, England who came across this culture while visiting a friend in Poland.
When Joseph Vanderliet, President of Certified Foods in Woodland California, heard about our Polish culture he promptly sent 50 pounds of gorgeous, stone ground, pumpernickel flour and said ‘Put it to good use’.
