Saint Vincent Pancake Mix, Tote Bags, Bread Warmers

Saint Vincent Pancake Mix, Tote Bags, Bread Warmers Tuesday, December 4, 2001

 A new pancake mix made with Saint Vincent Gristmill flour, and tote bags and bread warmers featuring the Saint Vincent Gristmill, are the latest offerings from the Gristmill General Store on Beatty Road. The pancake mix is made from Saint Vincent unbleached flour. Each packet yields 18 four-inch pancakes, which should be cooked on a hot, lightly greased griddle.

The Gristmill, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, is now illustrated on canvas tote bags and on bread warmers. These items join a number of other Gristmill products, including gourmet coffee and chocolates, Saint Vincent bread and bread mix, cookie cutters, and the Cat's Meow replica of the Gristmill.

Once used to grind the wheat, corn, barley, rye, oats and buckwheat that the monks raised, the gristmill still provides flour for the famous Saint Vincent bread. A local bakery has been using Saint Vincent flours and the Saint Vincent bread recipe to produce the famed bread, which is available at the General Store. The bread mix is also available in a jar, allowing store patrons to bake Saint Vincent Bread themselves.

The Gristmill General Store is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays to Saturdays and from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sundays. The General Store's phone is 724-537-0304.

Saint Anthony Mary Claret, Bishop, Religious Founder
Beginning on October 24, 1846, the date usually placed as the foundation of Saint Vincent Archabbey, Seminary, and College, Wimmer and his young companions began to pray the Divine Office of the Church. Daily they began with, “Deus in adjutorium meum intende; Domine, ad adjuvandum me festina.” These time-honored words had begun the day for Christians for over eighteen centuries in the western Church. At this time, they began the day, everyday, at the first Benedictine monastery in the United States. (Rev. Brian Boosel, O.S.B., master's thesis, Slippery Rock University)
