Dam Good™ English Muffins Guide:
What makes our vegan sourdough English muffins different?:
Our product is unique because unlike other English muffin brands, our vegan sourdough English muffins are not round. Our company slogan, “Every One Is Different” symbolizes that not only is each of our English muffins different in shape, but that we cherish the differences between us and embrace the diversity among us, within our own workforce and beyond.
In addition, our line of English muffins don’t contain any preservatives, dough conditioners, or GMO’s.
How to store our gourmet English muffins; What is the shelf life of our preservative-free English muffins? Can you freeze English muffins?:
- Depending on transit time, at room temperature, our handmade English muffins will last between 3 to 5 days from when you receive your package.
- Further, in the refrigerator (suggested), our gourmet English muffins will last between 5 to 8 days from when you receive your package.
- Lastly, in the freezer (recommended), our gourmet English muffins will last up to 12 months.
How to serve our vegan sourdough English muffins?:
If you are storing your handmade English Muffins at room temperature or in the refrigerator, before toasting, we recommend fork spliting them over slicing!
However, if you are storing your preservative-free English muffins in the freezer, we recommend either thawing them on the counter for 15-30 minutes or fork splitting in half and toasting. Another method to defrost them is to microwave them for 15-20 seconds, halving by fork splitting or slicing, and toasting.
How to toast our sourdough English muffins?:
Our vegan sourdough English muffins can be toasted using a variety of different appliances and methods:
- Toaster oven
- Air fryer
- Griddled on a pan in butter
- Under the broiler in the oven
NOTE: Due to the higher hydration content in our English muffin dough, and depending on the strength of your toaster, our English muffins may need to be toasted twice.
Fork Splitting VS. Slicing
After all this talk of fork splitting versus slicing, you might be wondering what the difference is. As such, we've outlined the discrepancies and respective details below:
What is the fork splitting technique?:
The fork splitting technique is our recommended way of splitting our vegan sourdough Dam Good English Muffins in half because it allows for a better texture, full of peaks and valleys. This will yield a crispier toast, and full absorption of whatever you decide to top them with!
How to fork split our English muffins:
Fork splitting Dam Good English Muffins is quite straight forward and self explanatory. It is preformed the exact way you'd think, by perforating the entire perimeter of the vegan sourdough English muffin with a fork and pulling it apart.
Here is a video of Olivia, our operations manager, at our wholesale bakery demonstrating how to fork split our vegan sourdough English muffins:
Since fork splitting is such a well-renowned technique, an English muffin fork splitter device was even created, and we sell it right here on our website! Check out how it works below:
How to slice our handmade English muffins:
Use a bread knife to slice the vegan sourdough English muffin in half like you would a roll. Note that this method of splitting will eliminate the unique texture of the peaks and valleys that our English muffins have.
