Rye bread.

Made the rye bread for the first time yesterday. The recipe was extremely simple, as I did not have a whole bunch of ingredients that are usually recommended for the rye bread, i.e. molasses, malt, etc. It was not pure rye. 75% rye and 25% white all-purpose flour. Yeast and salt that is it. Also was not sure what would be better loaf or make it in the baking dish, made both. What/how do you do rye bread? Here is a pic.

Looks great, Charlie. You just reminded me I haven't made rye bread for awhile myself.

Did you add anything to it? Sometimes I like caraway or fennel seeds, or even onions.

Charlie,

Heaven scent ! I love homemade dark breads ... My Mom who was born in Switzerland used to bake all types of seeded dark breads. Well, then, I rather have home made bread, than dessert ... Truth ...

Kindest. Have lovely August.
Margi.

Looks great, CharlieD. I love rye bread and making it. Which reminds me...I usually form the loaves rather than using a pan. Or, I make rye bagels. I often add caraway seeds and a bit of instant coffee...and, I've been known to add some sauerkraut, too.

I did not add any seeds as I do not like them, especially caraway seeds; well I do like sesame, but did not think it would work for the rye bread. The loaf that I made by hand kind of flattened during baking, though it rose nicely when it was proofing. Still would like to hear some of your recipes for the rye bread, please.

Just read a recipe for a rye bread and it calls for "Maltodextrin" - what is it, or rather what name is it sold in the stores, is it even sold in the stores?

Maltodextrin is sometimes added to flours with low gluten (like rye) to improve the body and rise of the bread. It doesn't have any effect on flavor.

There are two brew supply shops in the twin cities that carry it: Midwest Supplies in Mpls and Northern Brewer in St. Paul.

Maltodextrine - 1 lb. : Midwest Supplies

Malto Dextrin 8 oz. : Northern Brewer

Thank you. Judging by the fact that there only two places selling the stuff I bet very few people probably using it.

I would say it's one of those things that "serious" bread makers might use. But for home cooks like us, you're probably right.
