Pull up a chair. There's plenty room around the table...with an opportunity of good conversation and eating a great homemade bread. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil water, caraway and anise seeds for 5 minutes.
  2. When warm add molasses, brown sugar, and shortening.
  3. Add yeast.
  4. Mix in flour and salt.
  5. Let rise 1-1/2 hours in a warm place.
  6. Add rye flour gradually. If sticky add more flour; rye soaks up water slower than regular flour so hold off a scooch.
  7. Let rise again.
  8. Form into 2 loaves; let rise.
  9. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes.
