This bread is very aromatic and will have you waiting by the oven in anticipation. Similar to traditional German loaves you find in Old World bakeries. It is a thick crusted rye loaf with a delicate center. 

This rye bread is very hearty and can be served by itself or with a favorite stew. Great anytime of year!
