Herbfarm's Beer Bread???

kaleokahu Sep 2, 2012 08:59 AM

Years ago, Wahine and I were extremely fond of the Herbfarm's Beer Bread mix. Does it still exist anywhere? Has anyone deconstructed/duplicated it at home?

Wicked good, so I'm hoping someone can help...

Mahalo,
Kaleo

        Hi, drummagick:

        Oooh, thanks for that link. I'll try these mixes, starting with the zesty dill. Yes, my memory is that the HF mix definitely contained dill.

        Mahalo,

          As a fellow dill fanatic, I was curious whether anybody here uses the Gourmet Garden brand dill, it comes in a ready-to-use tube and is always in the veggie dept shelves, almost always at Safeway. Made in Australia.

          It's perfect for things like egg salad and when fresh is just not an option, or on top of pizza, or just whatever. Ditto on their basil and garlic, too.

            I just got a few randomly for free, and have actually come to really like them. I don't use something like dill enough to have it around, but was making an aioli for salmon the other day, and it was just the right addition. I don't love that it has a fair amount of 'things' added to it, but it's better than nothing.

        No, but I don't remember the Herbfarm's mix having dill in it. I thought it had poppy seed and was just a bit sweet. Is my memory off?

          We used to live about a 1/4 mile from the Herbfarm when it was in Fall City and I LOVED their beer bread mix! I haven't found anything to compare.
          I just made a box of the new Krusteaz Beer Bread mix, and I think if you add an extra tablespoon (or so) of sugar and some poppy seeds, it may come close.

            Hi, drummagick:

            Thaks for the bump. Does the Krusteaz mix have dill in it?

            OK, given all the responses, I ordered the Herbfarm Cookbook. Hopefully the bread is one of the 200 recipes.
