    wildschwein's Note:

    This recipe for rye bread makes a medium-sized, heavy loaf. It is great served with butter, mustard, and cold meats. It's also delicious when toasted in the morning, and spread with lashings of butter and honey. Mmmm!

      If mixture seems too dry, add a little more water/beer.

      Kneed the mixture for 10 minutes, until smooth and elastic, adding a little more flour from time to time if the mixture is too sticky.

    7. 7

    13. 13
      Place in hot oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on how crusty you like it.

      Made this yesterday, and today my lunch is a ryebread sandwich with creamy cheese, butter and marmite, mmm, it's so good! I used my bread machine to knead the dough, and then took it out, formed my loaf, let it rise again and baked it. I've never made ryebread before and didn't know what to expect, well, its excellent!!!! I'll definitely be making this again. Made for PAC Spring 2008, thanks zoetrope!

      This bread is delicious. Definitely a keeper. I had to make the bread twice because the first time I baked it at 200 F instead of 200 C. It was good then too even though I had to bake it longer.
