Monkey bread, pull-apart loaf… chop bread?
Sure, there’s a brand new solution to make everybody’s favourite social gathering bread. Quite than laboriously divvy a mound of dough into particular person bits, spherical each bit right into a ball, and stack in a pan, I provide you with chop bread: a gloriously messy, supremely simple free-form technique of creating stuffed bread for a crowd.
With contemporary, crisp apples showing on the farm stand, my ideas flip to baking with fall’s favourite fruit. And since fruit and cheese go collectively like pie and ice cream, I’m pairing apples with my favourite sharp cheese, Cabot cheddar.
In fact, if you say Cabot cheddar, you’ve mentioned a scrumptious mouthful. With their latest strains — Founders’ Assortment and Farmers’ Legacy — Cabot takes cheddar to an entire new aircraft. All of their many cheddars supply refined variations in taste and texture, from crumbly and super-sharp to comfortable and clean.
Nevertheless it’s not simply Cabot’s cheese that units this enterprise aside. Cabot, a neighbor of ours up right here in Vermont, can be the primary cheesemaker and dairy cooperative to grow to be a licensed B Corp — a designation King Arthur Flour shares. As mission-driven companies, we’re each dedicated to social and environmental excellence, not simply the underside line.
Talking of the underside line, right this moment’s is all about taste. Style this cider-glazed Apple Cheddar Chop Bread, see how easy it’s to toss collectively … and by no means monkey round along with your social gathering bread once more.
