Iron Mike's Dark Rye Bread (Bread Machine)

READY IN: 3hrs 10mins
Recipe by Mr-Mom

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!

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.
