Some mail from this week’s MAILBAG…..“Back many years ago there was a delightful bakery on Main Street, in the middle of the same block shared with Ida’s and Strasmick Jewelers. That bakery had some of the best pastries imaginable, along with hard-to-find breads. One of my favorite in the breadlines was their Salt-Rising Bread. Toasted, it was a taste-treat when slathered with butter. Alas, the bakery is gone and seemingly so is any other place that makes Salt-Rising Bread. For years I’ve tried to find a replacement bakery to no avail. There are a couple listed on the internet, and I did order loaves in hopes it would be similar — but it wasn’t. I’ve tried a few of the recipes I’ve found, but they’re tedious and quite disappointing. How I’d love to have Solomon’s recipe! Might anyone know of a place where this bread can be found… or a recipe that would be similar? Thanks.”  -Mae Davenport Cox  mae@coxok.com
