Has everyone forgotten "salt sticks" at the bakery?
Years ago when living in New York the bakeries offered "salt sticks." These were what looked like croissants, baked; but the pastry is tougher than croissants. The outside is washed with egg and sprinkled with coarse salt and caraway seeds before baking.
I'll date myself and tell you that the first place I had these was at the venerable Butter-Crisp Bakery on Union Street in Flushing (long gone).
I've stumbled into a couple of bakeries in Queens looking for these, and they don't have them anymore. Where can we find these in Brooklyn/Queens?
