Wild Yeast Sourdough
The desire to focus on baked goods made with wild, natural yeast spawned in 2017 when health issues inspired her to start looking for alternatives to store bought, over processed, unhealthy products. Mainly, she wanted to learn to create nutritious and easily digestible breads that both her and her husband could enjoy. After taking classes and much research, the simplest and yet equally complex way to accomplish this mission was to look to the past. Ancient grains and ancient methods with an ever-present desire to learn more and get better was the just the recipe she was seeking.
Bread is the humblest of foods and one of the most important staples in any cultures’ diet. There are stories of fermented breads being made over 2000 years ago in the farthest reaches of ancient civilizations. That is to say, everyone loves bread! As such, why not make the most nutritious and best tasting bread possible? Keeping the ingredients simple and true to what our bodies need, as well as continuing to be open to learning more in an effort to always strive for betterment, that is the mission of Jack + Adeline Hearth.
Leanne’s love for baking stems from being in her grandmother, Roberta’s, kitchen as a kid, standing on a footstool and playing with a “dough” mixture of simple flour and water. She learned that how and when ingredients are mixed are just as important as what is being mixed. The alchemy of the process was and is always a constant source of fascination.
