"couple of questions...is Rye flour easily purchased? Not sure I've eve seen it in my local supermarket. Also, could this be baked on a stone? Thanks in advance."
"My husband says this is the best bread recipe we have ever made and trust me we have baked a great number of breads. We made this exactly as recipe states."
"I just made this recipe and next time will leave out the caraway seeds. I only used 2 T. this time but don't think it needs any (and besides my husband doesn't like them). I mixed everything by hand in the large mixing bowl and then put the dough hook on when I added the remaining flour (which was only 1/2 cup). I did NOT knead by hand but let the dough hook work for about two minutes then just left the dough covered in the bowl and put into the microwave with a pitcher of very hot water (to proof). Baked on parchment paper for 35 minutes and it turned out great! Thanks for sharing your recipe!"
