Annie’s Bread

Despite spending years making probably thousands of loaves of bread, Grammy Annie still enjoys treating her family to what daughter-in-law Janelle Stoltzfus calls “a taste of love.” We were invited to sample Annie’s homemade bread, which we topped with strawberry jam. It definitely brought back memories of childhood! In this day and age, who thought a simple slice of bread and homemade jam could be so tasty and satisfying! Read more about the Stoltzfus' multi-generational household and two family-run businesses here. Yield: 6 Loaves
