The full range of bread is available from our collection point in Shaftesbury or from our many independent shop outlets.
We are always seeking to expand our network of outlets. If you would like to discuss stocking our products, at wholesale prices, please contact Paul Merry.
We use Stoate’s stoneground flour which retains all those nutritious darker bits, germ oil, vitamins, and minerals essential for health.
Not white actually, but creamy off-white. Maximum sieving for a stone mill, but unlike industrial white flour, the sieving still leaves lots of nutritious darker bits, and the flour is suffused with the precious wheat germ oil with its natural vitamins and minerals.
All white products are made using the sponge and dough method, which gives depth of flavour and long-keeping qualities.
PANARY’S yeasted brown bread uses a blend of wholemeal and stoneground white flour from Cann Mills.
Malt Star (‘Granary’ style)
At Stoates flour mill the ‘Granary’ type is called Malt Star.
An ancient grain, genetically thought of as a cousin of wheat, grown in early Middle East civilisations, spread around by the Romans. Unlike wheat it has not been changed and hybridised by mankind in the twentieth century. It has retained its own type of gluten that is considered more digestible than wheat. By the nineteenth century in Britain spelt was superseded by the modern wheat varieties with their higher yields. Very expensive because its tough hull needs to be removed by a polishing process (like rice). Nutty flavoured, the softer gluten needing the support of a tin. Loaves are made with equal weight of wholemeal spelt flour, and sieved (white) spelt.
Entirely different bakery practice, with the leavening of the bread done by a nurtured wild yeast, rather than the factory made strain. Its discovery, thousands of years ago, would have occurred by accident as bread makers encountered spontaneous fermentation. Gives an acidic tanginess, different structure, and keeps well. Enjoyed by those wishing to avoid factory made yeast, and those who like robust and moist bread.
PANARY’s flagship loaf, a mixture of sieved 81% (brown) and stoneground white, leavened by a wild strain of yeast present in our local Dorset flour. Bottom baked, with a remarkable crust, and a moist chewy crumb.
Pure 100% rye (no wheat whatsoever), made with rye sourdough leaven in the style of rye breads made in Russia and the Baltic states where wheat cannot be grown easily. Needs the support of a tin. Keeps for a week.
