Whether by email or in-person at places like the John Jay Homestead Farm Market, here's a collection of questions frequently asked of us about our artisan sourdough English muffins:
Q: “What makes your English muffins Dam Good™?”
A: Dam Good English muffins are:
- Made with the highest-quality, all-natural, non-GMO ingredients, like unbleached King Arthur flour, and do not contain any dough conditioners (added to bread dough to strengthen its texture and extend shelf life) or preservatives.
- Mixed with two separate sourdough starters (levain and poolish) which, after toasting, makes Dam Good English Muffins a little crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Some customers have described them as having a texture that’s between a commercially-made English muffin and a bagel.
- “Handmade for Goodness Sake” and are also hand cut so they have unique shapes and sizes--which makes every one different.
Q: “How did you come up with the name "Dam Good™ English Muffins?”
A: Dam Good™ English Muffins is a word play that references the New Croton Dam, which is just outside of our hometown of Croton-on-Hudson, NY.
Q: “What is the shelf life?”
A: Once purchased and stored at room temperature, Dam Good™ English Muffins will keep for up to a week. To extend the shelf-life, refrigerate for up to 7-10 days or for best results, pre-slice, and freeze for up to 6 months.
Q: “Do Dam Good™ English Muffins contain any tree nuts?”
A: No, there are no tree nuts included in any of our recipes. While our kitchen facility is not tree nut-free, none of the equipment used in the production of Dam Good™ English Muffins comes into contact with any nut products.
Q: “Do Dam Good™ English Muffins contain any dairy products?”
A: No, Dam Good™ English Muffins are griddled in a Avocado Oil.
Q: “Are the 'Whole Wheat' and Vegan 'Multigrain' varieties made from only whole wheat flour?”
A: No, since the texture would be too dense, a 50% blend of whole wheat and unbleached white flours are used.
Q: “What is King Arthur flour?”
A: King Arthur Flour is based in Norwich, Vermont and since 1790 has produced flour that is only-grown and milled in the United States. King Arthur Flour is never-bleached and uses only the purest ingredients, free from GMOs. Read more about King Arthur Flour’s history here.
