There was this rye bread made in Kiev, that was so good the turists would buy it to bring it home. That one i would like to make. The problem is Russian rye flour is dark, practically brow, so bread comes out brown. I do not know why it is but rye flour here is white, or practiacly white, so people strat adding colors, and with colors comes different taste.

There are different types of rye flour. I think it's Hodgson Mill that I've bought that makes a dark rye flour. From what I understand, the color has to do with the amount of bran in the flour. More bran means darker color.

I've seen recipes where people add cocoa or coffee to their rye bread to make it darker. You're right. That is kind of strange.

Bob's Red Mill brand also has dark rye (whole rye berry) flour.

My parents didn't feed me that either. We used to get the neighbour kid to steal a few slices from home. Then we would take off the crust and squish each slice into a tiny, little, dough-like ball.

Kids are weird.

Ha ha I did that too! But I would cut off the crust, squish the slices between two books, then toast the flattened result and butter it. It was actually pretty good... My grandpa would butter one side of wonderbread, fry that side and serve. Also pretty good :)

Speaking of fried bread, I have an awesome quick recipe:

Slice the bread you like, lightly butter on both sides, fry till golden brown, set aside. Separtly mix ketchup and softened butter, about 50:50, till smooth. Spread on the bread, sprinkle with grated Parmezan.

The only thing better than squished bread balls are squished bread balls fried up in garlic butter.

We didn't eat them; we just played with them.

Oh... well.. umm.. hmmm.. I don't think they would have been as much fun to play with after being in the garlic butter.
