Have you, like many others, tried your hand at baking during these WFH days? Maybe you’ve played it safe and just grabbed a boxed cake or muffin mix from the pantry. But are you thinking perhaps to step it up a notch? Today’s the day- it’s Sourdough Bread Day!
Breadmaking can be a daunting task for many- but lately yeast has become hard to come by (along with toilet paper and bottled water!). The next best thing you can do if you can’t find yeast at the store is to make your own sourdough starter from scratch.
Wild yeast naturally lives in flour, so it is actually quite easy to get it to grow into a sourdough starter.
Here’s what you’ll need to do:
DAY 1: Combine flour & room temperature water in a glass jar on the counter, cover with towel
DAY 2: Feed the starter with equal parts flour and water, mix
DAY 3: The starter will become bubbly and active. Feed again, mix
DAY 4: Feed with flour & water again, mix
DAY 5: Starter should be frothy and billowy & smell sour- it’s ready to use!
Now you have your own homemade yeast to make your own yummy loaf of sourdough! Once you’re ready for the official taste-test, make sure to grab your American-made Cutlery bread knife to make it super easy to slice up the yumminess!
Serve it with a bowl of soup on a rainy day, or make towering sandwich, you can’t go wrong!

How can you and your company help recognize America’s agriculture community this week?
Since the beginning of humanity, a sense of community is what holds us all together and keeps our world and economy functioning.
Today is #FarmRescuerDay, a day focusing around a wonderful non-profit organization that began in 2005.
Farm Rescue (https://farmrescue.org/) helps American farmers in need- whether it’s due to sickness, injury, financial crisis, or natural disaster. Its volunteers provide manpower either out in the field by planting and harvesting, in the barn by feeding livestock, or by lending the necessary equipment or money.
How can you help support our nation’s farmers today?
As we all wait out this coronavirus pandemic from the comfort of our homes, we can’t help but to start compiling a stockpile list in our heads.
What is on your list? Non-perishable foods such as beans, rice, pasta, etc? Lots of proteins to stick in the freezer? Have you also thought about what is the best pocket knife to have on hand? It’s always good to have a pocket knife nearby to help you with a variety of tasks to help ease the anxiety of an emergency situation.
Today is St. Patrick’s Day, but what are we going to do to celebrate since most festivals and parades are canceled due to coronavirus concerns? Sure, you can still wear green all day (with a beautiful green engraved pocket knife) and drink a pint of Guinness, but it’s not the same as going to a fun boisterous parade.
Don’t worry, there’s still a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, if you’re willing to go search for it. We sure found one! After ogling over these beautiful rainbow engraved pocket knives, we finally found our way to the end of the rainbow, where there’s a gold engraved pocket knife.
Take your pick- one for you and one for your best customers!
Don’t forget to add a beautiful green one to your list as well!
