    Hi,
    I seen this post German Dark Rye Bread by Dee514 and am not real sure this is what I want. If this describes your bread Dee, please let me know.
    I have not had this bread in 20 years so I am really picking my brain. It is called Lithuanian Rye. My mom use to get it at Strak and VanTil's in NW Indiana. The bread was black and free formed like Italian bread. The lable was slapped on the bread before baking. It is kinda like Pumpernickle but thousands times better. It was black where Pumpernickle is brown. It had a better flavor. No I do not think it had a molassas flavor, but I am not sure. It was not real heavy, but I think heavier than Pumpernickle. It did not have caraway seeds unless they were crushed. Made some awsome Reuban sandwiches.
    Anybody know what I am talking about? I posted this in the regular forum and had no takers. I have searched the site and the web with no luck. My taste buds are in pain here aching for the past. Please help them with there fix.

    Hi 3maryk,

    from your description it is hard to decide which bread it could be. Lithuania has several tradtidional rye breads. I have found one website, where several recipes are listed. Maybe you find your bread there icon_biggrin.gif

    Lithuanian Traditional Foods. Breads with
    BLACK RYE BREAD (a simple rye bread)
    SCALDED RYE BREAD (with caraway, so maybe not the one you are looking for)
    BREAD WITH YEAST (also with caraway seeds, but with an unusual mixture of beer and milk in the dough)
    BLACK RYE BREAD WITH POTATOES

    and also BARLEY ROLLS and WHEAT BREAD

    There is a commercial bakery in Chicago that makes this and sells it to grocery stores...we get it in Wisconsin. The bakery is called the Baltic Bakery.

    Hmmm. Chicago is just over an hour away. Maybe I could convince Kroger or something to get it. I use to work for Osco and know if the vendor or item is not on the "approved list" that they cannot carry it, even if it is requested. Real smart icon_rolleyes.gif !!

    Thanks for looking. I am running now, but wanted to check out my thread. I will look into them more later when I can relax. Ha Ha, relax, that was funny.

    Thank you very much. When I was a kid many many moons ago the lables were white with dark blue print.

    I looked at the recipes today. I think that black rye bread may just be it. It was a simple bread but unbelievably good. I will make some and post the results here for you. Thanks.
    By the way, what did you put in your search engine to find it? I tried and came up with nothing.

    Thanks. I still need to get to the health food store to get the flour. I had a religious convention to go to today and did not have a chance to get to the store. Top priority this week.

    You might want to try German or Polish delis - a lot of them carry Lithuanian rye also. Also ethnic grocers - the kind that carry goods from a lot of countries - carry the bread. I' live outside of Chicago, but all the European ethnic grocers and some of the delis in my area carry Baltic Bakery or Racine Bakery breads. Some of the Jewels do also.

    I finally was able to get my mitts on a grain mill to make the course ground rye flour in the black rye bread. The starter is sitting in my oven (draft free area). It takes 3 days to make it. Let you know how it is.
    The Jewel's by me do not carry it. I use to work for Osco and the company had decided if it was not in the planogram it could not be ordered no matter what. Pretty dumb if you ask me. I did not even ask. Thanks for the info.

    Wow, I was not brave enough to attempt that recipe, although ladies I knew when growing up did make them, in an oaken bread tub, keeping a piece of dough to use as the starter the next time around. I will be definitely interested in your experience.
