This wonderful dark rye loaf is baked in a tin, making it easier to be sliced.
It smells like the Alps in Austria: earthy, wholesome and both bitter and sweet at the same time. It makes you think of hiking in the sunshine just to stop for a beer and a slice of rye bread with butter on top... Heavenly!
We love it with butter and black currant jam or marmalade, but try it also with cheese or salami, or cream cheese, chives and smoked salmon as an appetiser ;)
The loaf is packed with wonderful sunflower seeds and coated in rye flakes, it's left to self-ferment for at least 15 hours so it gets all the flavours of the organic and wholemeal rye flour, the seeds and the treacle. Plus point of this bread? It's very moist, making it last soft for longer (in an ideal environment, not too hot or humid, it can last up to 6 days!).
Impossible not to fall in love.
Please note that your loaf will always be made with the same amount of flour per loaf, but we have to adapt the amount of water to the humidity in the air: that plus baking-caused evaporation may result in fluctuations in your loaf's weight.
Please note that as we slice the bread by hand, we won’t be able to slice the Rye as it’s always still hot when ready for delivery: this bread is still very delicate and wet until completely cooled, and we’d end up destroying it and wasting a lot of it (it sticks to the knife).
