Salt Rising Bread

Posted by madjillmom on May 26, 2009

When I was young, we used to buy salt rising bread.  I think it was only made on certain days and that it may have come from the Piggly Wiggly.  My sister, Kay, who remembers everything could tell me where we got it.  I do not think it was from a bakery.  Wherever it came from, it was wonderful.  I crave it at least once a month and I haven’t had any in at least 35 years.  I checked the web and got a few recipes.  Evidently, others feel a strong love of salt rising bread.  It is the best toast of my life. 

I used to make sourdough bread and regular bread.  I need to try to make some salt rising bread though it is a notoriously hard to do.  It may have some German roots.   It may be the only way I ever get to eat it again.
