Reviews forCaraway Rye Bread
"Made this last week! It is the best rye bread recipe I have made so far. I'm making it again today! :)"
"I mixed this in the breadmaker on the dough cycle, kneaded it and made two round loaves and baked in the oven. Because of our high altitude in Colorado, I reduced the yeast to 2 tsp. I find that most bread dough recipes in this altitude rarely need over 1-1/4 tsp of yeast per loaf. We enjoyed it sliced for dinner and also it made excellent sandwiches . . great reubens!"
