As I said, to each their own ... What kills me are the number of 'merican "rye" recipes that call for cumin seed, because people don't seem to know the difference between caraway and cumin, LOL! Some day I would like to try a rye with some carom seed (ajwain) - it has a flavor that I think would go well with rye.
It all comes down to what you learn to eat the first time. In Russia seeds were not used for flavor, but planting next year's crop.

Addie, if that were true, all cooking would be pretty plain - because nearly all spices are actually seeds. Plus, there'd be no bread because there'd be no flour because they saved all the seed to plant ... to what purpose is the planting if you don't use some of what you grow for food? Or at least decoration, say flowers ...

No, not at all. I'll try to find a picture to post here.

Frankly I do not care if you think that it is "wrong" or "doesn't taste proper". I do think it is true: "To each his own".

Oddly enough, I made that statement in reference to Jewish Rye, not Ukranian or Russian or Dutch Rye ... And I WAS being a bit facetious. But if you want to be that serious about it, feel free. LOL!

Just because it is called "Jewish", doesn't mean that it is Jewish per se. They have brought it from the places they used to live in at the time, and those places are in fact Russia and Ukraine. I am not serious about this at all. You like what you like, I like what I like. The only reason I quoted you was because on one hand you are saying to each his own on the other hand you saying it is wrong. Really it doesn't matter.

But how thick do you cut the slices?
