Deli Rye Bread

Deli Rye Bread

Today I made Deli Rye Bread for the first time.

It's a light rye with caraway seeds infusing the interior crumb with a wonderful fragrance and taste.

Deli Rye first slice

This bread is moist with a chewy golden brown crust decorated with more tasty caraway seeds. I am pleased with the shape and texture of this loaf, as well as with the subtle rye taste. It has a nice cross-section slice shape:

Moist, chewy and elastic enough to make a very nice sandwich.

This made a lovely dinner sandwich tonight.

I'll be baking more of this recipe.

This rye bread makes great breakfast toast! Delicious with homemade plum jam.

Beautiful shape and presentation. I can almost smell the aroma, what fabulous photos.

BLT's are yummy with any kind of bread, but yours looks especially scrumptious.

Hi Bob,
Thanks for the bread compliments. Yes, I love BLT's, especially on homemade bread.

Hi Jen,
Yes, try the rye bread. It's really good.

Hi Ed,
I use recipes from many sources, but recently I've been exploring the recipes and methods found in the book "Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day". Great book.
