Artisanal English muffins roll out in Medford

And, yes, they're locally sourced, WBUR reports.

The news gets Lucy Fitzgerald's Rozzie up:

Fornax in Rozzie did it first. Best breakfast sammy in the area hands down.

There used to be a little bakery on Rindge Ave. in North Cambridge that made their own English muffins, in addition to the usual pastries. They were divine. (Although I don't recall any griddle marks.) Like many small businesses back then, they closed for vacation a couple of weeks every summer. One year they just never reopened. That was in the mid to late '70s.

That's what I did. Works for you, not for me. I'll try again.

Edit: Oddly, cutting out and repasting the same content made it work. IANAWebEngineer I guess.

You had something like:

The img tag needs to be on the same line as the URL, otherwise the software here thinks you're trying to include a line-break, which then messes up the URL. Sorry about that!

Silly software engineer me likes to have line breaks for readability. But thanks for the clarification.

Back to my regularly scheduled whining.

Yeah, if you don't buy bulk process english muffins you're so obviously an asshole.

and have them be better than mass produced crap.

I was grabbing lunch with a workmate a few years ago and suggested a sandwich shop. His face twisted up, “You mean one of those yuppie places?” To some people anything that’s made somewhat well is for yuppies. They prefer to wallow in the muck.

are pretty good, but Fornax is better, I think. S and S are now available everywhere it seems. They have a good marketer. Good for them.

are both really good, so much so that they inspired me to bake my own. This recipe was nice. http://www.girlversusdough.com/2014/04/28/english-muffins/

...using "sammy" for the word "sandwich." It's OK if your eight years old, but otherwise, adults, please stop. It's the same number of syllables. It's not shorter, it's not cute, it's annoying. Thanks for your time. Have a pleasant day.

Sam-sam or sammitch?

..."sang-wich.".

Question: Why would you never go hungry in the desert? Answer: Because of all the sand-which-is-there.

Thank you and goodnight!

But I've tried their english muffins and they are really good. In fact, too good - I had to stop buying them as I found myself eating the whole lot of them within a very short period of time. They are good enough to eat plain and untoasted.

I've been passing by this place, in my area, for some time and smelling the wonderful baking and I have yet to see their wares in a store!

Classic Medford issue - we make the upscale stuff that our neighbors get to eat. Kind of like when the Whole Foods went in, listed an address without a city other than "Near Arlington and Cambridge".

I'll have to keep an eye out for their stuff.

(FTR - Pranzi's, the pizza place that was there for many years, moved to Boston Ave and they are still awesome)

I've bought them in a couple of Whole Foods in the area, at a minimum the WF in the South End. Prossibly the one near Alewife as well.
