In an effort to make good on some of our leftover Holiday Ham (and because this month’s #BreadBakers theme is Rye), I thought this would be a perfect bread for Ham sandwiches. Since this has molasses AND rye AND anise seeds, it’s a very strongly flavored bread. So, I thought dijon, rye bread, ham… you get the idea. Honestly though, it became a little much to eat after a while. (Was it the ham, or the bread… hmmm…)
Being from NYC I am a sucker for Jewish Rye. Of course it would be entirely predictable of me to make Jewish Rye, so I thought that making a Swedish Rye would be a great way to expand my bread baking repertoire. (And isn’t that the point of this anyway?) It was an easy bread to bake, and it yielded 2 loaves. The whole thing was quite picturesque — snow falling, winter break, and Chopin playing on the stereo while I kneaded away. Ahhh…
The recipe is from the Gourmet Magazine cookbook. They have added it to their online arsenal here.
Anyway, I hope you will take a moment to visit each of our lovely #BreadBakers’ posts this month, as they have a number of great things going on with Rye too!
