    Mr-Mom's Note:

    This makes a hearty, full flavored, wonderfully textured 1 1/2 lb. Dark Rye Bread. I had a hard time finding a Rye Bread recipe dark enough, so I combined 5 or 6 different ideas from lots of recipes to get my desired "strength" of Rye. There are a TON of ingredients, I know...but it's worth the effort. Enjoy!

      Mr-Mom, this is a keeper. I've tried several recipes for a dark rye bread. This is the darkest and the tastiest. I made it just as written, removed the dough from the bread machine, formed into hot dog buns (!) and baked at 350 for about 18--20 minutes. I used whole wheat flour instead of white flour on the board to shape the rolls; that gave a nice little crunch to the crust. They rose nicely; the crumb is beautiful; the taste is very good. Oh, and I didn't use caraway seeds, not crazy about them. Next time I might replace 1 cup of the bread flour with whole wheat just to see the difference. Other possibilities I might try, just to get a little tang into the bread: 1 Tblsp. cider vinegar, and/or dried minced onions, maybe shape the rolls/bread in cornmeal. So, thanks for a good recipe . . . Janet

      I baked this in my ABM. I had rye sourdough starter to use, so I used it here, and observed the tackiness of the dough at the 5-minute kneading mark. I didn't do a mathematical calculation of adjustments before I started, so I give thanks that the recipe was forgiving. The taste was phenomenal! I will make this again, following the advice for sourdough starter substitution more carefully, and observe the end result when I "behave."

      Best rye bread that I have made! Love it as it is the tastiest recipe yet. I made in the bread machine, let it rise and baked in the oven 350 deg. for 28 min.
