From "Baking Sourdough Bread" by Goran Soderin and Georgel Stachal. This is a very interesting new book that explains the sourdough process very well. I have not yet made this bread, but hope to, as I just love rye. Prep time does not include the rising time. The dough requires two days to make! These have to be rather small loaves, given the amount of flour.

Directions

  1. Mix all the ingredients and knead well. Knead in the salt.
  2. Place the dough in a greased bowl. Cover with plastic film and let the dough stand in the refrigerator overnight.
  3. the next day, gently pour the dough onto a work surface. Fold the dough (basically the way you would a sheet of paper for placing into an envelope) Return to bowl and return to the refrigerator for app 5 hours, repeating the folding technique every hour.
  4. Pour the dough onto the work surface. Cut into pieces that are roughly 2 x 6 inches (10 x 15 cm) and place them on a greased baking sheet. Let them rise in the refrigerator for another 10 hours.
  5. Preheat oven to 450 deg F (250 deg C). Place the loaves in the oven and sprinkle a cup of water onto the floor of the oven (or use your favorite method for creating steam in the oven). Close the door and reduce the temperature to 400 deg F (210 deg C). Bake fr about 15 minutes.
