Good Rye Bread

Last week I was busy making Rhubarb Bread (I shared the recipe for that here).  In the cook book on the adjoining page was a recipe that said “Good Rye Bread”.  Well the kitchen was already a mess and Hubby and I both love rye bread so why not give it a try…  I am so glad I did!!  (Pardon the mis-shaped one on the right)

We both loved the bread.  It was super easy and it stayed moist.

Here’s the recipe:

1 pkg yeast
2 c warm water
1/4 cup sugar
2 cups rye flour
2 cups white flour

Mix well then add
salt to your liking
2 Tablespoons shortening
5 cups more white flour
Caraway seeds to you liking (I skipped them)

Let rise to double.  Put into loaves.  (my loaf pans where busy with rhubarb bread so I just made round loaves on a bar stone I have).  Bake at 375 for an hour.  I didn’t bake that long….

A simple very basic recipe but it was VERY good.  I’ll be making this many more times.
