    Linda Joyce's Note:

    Outstanding hearty black bread with fabulous crust. This recipe is on the back of Fleischmann's RapidRise Yeast. After living in Germany for almost a year I developed a real appreciation for their hearty bread. Now I can make some in my own kitchen. Enjoy!

      This was perfect for guests! I served with an herb/white wine pate and an Emmanthaler cheese. The bread was beautiful - dark mahogany with a clear shiney crust. It was dense but not overly heavy with a wonderful chewy texture - the most perfect foil for the pate & cheese. This bread had a slightly sweet taste that complemented the rye - I admit this loaf was made w/o the caraway as one guest is plagued with diverticulosis & I would feel terrible if I fed her a seed that initated a flare. I used all-bran buds & they melded wonderfully. I will make this again with the caraway soon! This is a real keeper! Thank you Linda Joyce for this great recipe - it is the "real thing"!
