    Making Rye Bread

    Hello Fellow Foodies:

    Is it possible to make rye bread without any wheat flour (or very little)? I am trying to stop eating wheat and as my hubby and I both love any kind of rye bread, I'm looking for a recipe, either bread machine or hand made, that uses no or very little wheat flour.

    Any help would appreciated.

    Pure rye bread is something I grew up with and crave, but I have had no luck in finding it here in the US. I do buy it when I visit Lithuania. This recipe is much like the recipe my grandmothers would have used to make a pure rye bread. I tried it once, ended up with a brick. Rye bread is a challenge to make, as the lower level of gluten creates a sticky dough that will never feel like a wheat flour dough. I intend to try this again when I have more time, Rye Sourdough Starter and Bread

    Mia is still active on this site and I am sure she will be willing to help.

    If you happen to have or can get any kind of sourdough stater, you can convert it to a rye starter by simply feeding it rye flour instead of wheat for a few feedings.

    Just found this recipe - I've eaten it but never made it. It is very hearty, Authentic German Black Bread (Schwarzbrot)

    another recipe

    I can translate this one, if you are interested. I might need to try this one

    Spelt flour can be substituted for wheat flour, with some cautions. It absorbs water very easily, and with rye doing the same, you'll need to be careful how much water goes in. Also, it makes for a more tender gluten strand, so you should not overknead it. I think you might be pleased with it as an alternate to wheat- it's got a mild and slightly sweet flavor which marries well with almost all other grains.
