MSP - Day Old Bread - Organic??
I want to make dressing/stuffing from scratch since all the commercial stuff has GM soy lecithin, high fructose corn syrup, and/or other unwanted stuff in it, yet I don't want to pay $3 for a 12 oz. bag for commercial "organic" stuffing either. If I can find a source of day-old organic bread I can use to make my own stuffing/dressing, that would be great. I simply can't see myself baking up batches of bread just to let good, freshly made bread go to waste for stuffing/dressing - yet. However, if there are no good "go-to's", I'll use my quick, no-knead recipes, and maybe chip in a "regular" one to boot.
All I really want is a decent supplier of day-old organic bread that I can use. Is there such a place in town? HELP!!!
It is not organic but Bread Coffee & Cake in the West Side neighborhood of St. Paul (385 Wabasha Street S, 651-222-7608, www.breadcoffeecake.com) sells their day-old breads at a discount everyday. As you enter the door, they are displayed on a shelf on your left across from their regular display cases. They are closed on Sundays. If you go there, you may want to try their cold-brewed coffee.
If I recall correctly (and I would even be willing to call today to confirm), I think Mississippi Market sells day-old bread, and much of their bread is organic, but to be honest, I wouldn't count on being able to secure it right before Thanksgiving as they don't have a lot of it, even on a non-holiday. A lot of the bakeries themselves donate their bread to homeless shelters.
