Dark Pumpernickel Tuscan Pane

Dark Pumpernickel Tuscan Pane

November 28th, 2016—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed. 

Fact: Very few commercially available pumpernickel breads are made predominantly with rye, because rye contains less gluten than other grains and makes dough much more difficult to work with. Also fact: We pride ourselves on offering unique products that are difficult to find elsewhere, so we’ve created Trader Joe’s Dark Pumpernickel Tuscan Pane, a pumpernickel bread made with rye.

Since we like to honor tradition wherever we can (‘tis the season), our Pumpernickel Pane is made according to old world methods, utilizing a slow-rise process. The 100% rye starter is mixed, hand-shaped, left to rise, and then baked on a stone hearth for a crisp crust and chewy, toothsome interior. It makes a great base for a classic Reuben, an avocado and Havarti melt, or a leftover-turkey-and-cranberry-sauce sandwich. We’re selling each 27 ounce loaf of Dark Pumpernickel Tuscan Pane for $2.99. Find it in our bakery aisle.
