Maslin: an Olde Englishe word meaning ‘mixed’. Referring in this case, to the wheat and rye in our sourdough boule. Mixed cropping means growing multiple species at the same time, in the same field to ensure the harvest no matter the peculiarities of the grow season. Used to be that they would plant wheat and rye together, harvest the wheat and rye together, mill the wheat and rye together, and bake the wheat and rye together. Because we live in a modern age, we blend the wheat and rye flour to our taste and specification.
