    Enjolinfam's Note:

    Ymmm, I love Rye bread. Makes a great soup bowl to serve guests or eat on your own. Goes great with chili's or stew. From "The Best of Silver Hills Delicious Vegetarian Cuisine" Cookbook. Update: When we made the rye bread (picture to the right) we added an extra cup or two of flour while kneading to make it a little lighter. It was really nice for us, but many like their rye bread heavier in which case you'll want to follow the directions without adding extra flour. Tasted terrific! Enjoy!

      We had the St. Patrick's day dinner today; corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, carrots, etc. I was excited to have homemade rye bread to go along with everything, but this was not the recipe I was looking for, way too sweet, I even used a little less molasses than called for because that was all I had left in the bottle. The rye flavor was almost non-existent, I used at least 1/4 a cup of caraway seeds but that did not help. DH was happy to have homeade bread but agreed that the slight rye & caraway flavors did not go with the sweetness. It rose nicely, but the texture was very dense. I will keep looking for the right recipe.

      Delicious, hearty bread... I placed a shallow pan of water on the bottom of the oven, and brushed the loaves with water a few times to make the crust extra hard. I also left out the caraway seeds (though I'm sure it would be great with them also). This bread is EXCELLENT fresh from the oven with butter, or cheese.. This will definitely be a staple!

      My husband absolutely adored this bread (BIG smile on his face which is rare)....and it was such a breeze to prepare. No kidding! I followed the directions to a tee, used all but one cup of the flour. Great ingredients. Smelled so good while it was baking. Color was so beautifully dark when it came out. This was gone in a jiffy. I will end up making this on a regular basis. Bravo! Used it to make Sue's Reuben Sandwich. Made for ZWT4.
