danast said:Oh Danny, I absolutely love this bread.  The only place I could get it was in a little Spar shop about 15 miles from here. Then it closed down for a while.  It has opened again under new management so I don't know if they have it.  I feel a trip to Tighnabruaich coming on.  It is such a treat.  I want some now!


Great to hear that you are also a fan, Danuta. Let's form a club Laugh

Normally I abhor what I call "girly breads" - no offense, but the ones that have olives, dates, wanuts embedded. For goodness sake!

Seeds I love, and they improve so much with toasting.

By contrast, we also love the cheap white sliced pan available in our village corner shop. One slice of each (toasted) with weekend fry-up brunch is delicious.

By the way, does anybody else believe that in-store Tesco bakery bread is far tastier than the Waitrose equivalent? We only have those two stores (+ Netto) in Newmarket so our range of sampling is limited.

LOL, S.O.L. I think we posted at the same time. Laugh

But I thank you for your practical advice and I hope that I am close to a slice of Burgen bread the next time I feel a rash coming on Big_Hug

I bake my own here, so I havent a clue about the in-store.  I bake 2 loaves for myself and 2-3 for the chicken lady at work.  as I barter with her.  She gets bread, I get 12 eggs a week.  I freeze one loaf, and take it out wednesday night. defrost it and then it is ready for the morning...Ok

works for us

That bread sounds delicious; I am a bit worried about the soya bit though as I am not supposed to eat it; if you are confirmed underactive thyroid, soya can interfere with your body's ability to absorb the levothyroxine and you can become ill again

I only found out last year after a dietician put me on a high soya diet and my thyroid went haywire!

Also useful to know is that lots of sunshine doesn't help either - it stresses the thyroid, which has to work harder to absorb the vitamin E?? from the sunshine

Best instore baked bread award goes to Morrisons. I know...I wasn't expecting that either...but ,seriously, in our local branch the bread is excellent, almost as good as home baked.

Kateuk makes things at http://www.etsy.com/shop/finkstuff and sometimes she does this too http://www54paintings.blogspot.com/ and also this http://finkstuff.weebly.com/

Hi Shelley, that is very useful to know - probably why I have to wear hats!   WellDone

Vitamin D is the sunshine vit; E is found in seeds and nuts etc, so that's another reason to have granary breads and similar. Linseed is particularly good, though
