MN - Monks Baking St. John's Bread

shoo-bee-doo | May 26, 2004 10:19 PM

In the latest Rake, there is an article about the monks living at St. Johns Abbey in Collegeville. One sentence piqued my interest especially. They said they baked thousands of loaves of St. John's bread every day as part of one of their businesses.

I vaguely remember back in the '50's and '60's reading or hearing about St. John's bread. I might have even seen it in the grocery store.

Does anyone know anything about it? Do they sell in only in St. Cloud or is there somewhere in the cities where they sell it?
