Hearty Maine Bread

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by Kerry Ciulla

This bread is awesome toasted or for hearty sandwiches. I frequently put the ingredients in the bread machine the night before, set the timer and wake up to a fresh hot loaf.

I have been in a baking mood and have been meaning to make this. Wish I had made this sooner. This is hearty and dark very good. I did add one of the optionals. If you ever use sunflower seeds, be sure you use sunflower kernels with the hulls removed. I didn't and the pieces of hulls never softned so I felt that I was picking twigs out of my bread. But that was my fault. Will be making this for my freezer.
