Rye Bread Caroway Seed Question

Im making Rye bread today.
I made this recipe a few months ago, and it came out great.
Instead of whole caraway seeds I ground them up in my spice grinder.

My question is, before. grind up my caraway seeds, should I toast them in a dry pan first? or does it not make a difference.

I dont remember what I did last time, but whatever I did worked out perfect. The recipe calls for whole seeds, and my wife doesn't like biting into a whole seed ( Flavor is too intense for her that way)

I think most, if not all, whole seeds and nuts are enhanced by toasting - it brings out their flavorful oils. So I would toast them first.

I would roast a very small amount and then sample the "raw" ones compared to the roasted ones. Then decide what seems most like what you remember.

I went with instinct and toasted them. Just felt like the right thing to do.

If that was your "instinct", then it's probably what you did last time.

Don't you write notes on your recipes? I do, but it can take a while before I add the notes to the electronic version of the recipe.

I do on the printed version ( and now every time I like a recipe I print it out, cause Ive saved a bunch of recipes whose website dont exist anymore), But on occasion I forget ( or think Ill remember for the next time, which I dont) .

I love caraway, and when I was very young, I found out what they really were, when somebody accidentally got a "seedless rye". "How could that be rye bread?" I asked.

I have never toasted them, but I'm sure they would be good, either way. Maybe make one loaf with toasted and one with untoasted, and compare them.

we have cable internet&tv - cable modem feeds a router for the LAN, the router has a usb port, onto which I hung a hard drive.
got a tablet for the kitchen - no keyboard - virtual/on-screen keyboard.

I can access all the recipes, and my shopping list, etc from any number of machines - but the main point is I can make notes on the "source" electronic recipe file 'in real time'
I'm absolutely lovin' it.


as an extra bonus - it's easy to carry the tablet, with shopping list app, through the pantry/cabinets/failing memory brain banks.


okay, , , it takes a little "setting up" to make all the magic work - but when it does, it's a joy to yer' stylus.
