Found this on ivillage, and here is their description: "Sweet and tangy flavors make this a perfect starter." I've made it twice so far, and it got rave reviews. I used New York Rye Bread for the Bread Machine ("New York Rye Bread for the Bread Machine") Time is a guess, and does not include time spent making homemade bread.
