The Crumb Stash bakes all-natural products

August 10th, 2007 · No Comments

The Crumb Stash, a bakery near Shelton Vineyards off Snow Hill Church Circle southwest of Dobson, not only produces all-natural products, it does so with recipes that have stayed the same since the 1800s.

“We use no preservatives, no chemicals. We use raw sugar. I have health problems, as a lot of people do, and I like to know what is in what I eat,” co-owner and head baker Dori Fritzinger told the Elkin Tribune. She buys most ingredients locally and relies on traditional recipes, some handed down from her grandmother who supported a single-parent family by baking.

“This is about the convenience of having the old ways new. We take heirloom recipes and convert them to use modern technology,” Fitzinger said. “I grew up in the early ’60s and my idea of a TV dinner was if mom left the TV on. Everything was made from scratch. There is just something about the flavor of a made-from-scratch cookie opposed to a store bought, mass-produced one.”

The Crumb Stash’s products include lavender cookies (from her grandmother’s Victorian-era recipe), zucchini bread, raisin bread, apple pie and cakes for special occasions including weddings. The bakery ships anywhere in the United States.

The Crumb Stash is on the 100-acre Soaring Eagle Farm, a certified organic farm. Dori and her husband, Keith, run both operations with help from their daughter, Rachel Hurt, and son and daughter-in-law, Joshua and Melissa Fritzinger.
