Making Rye Bread - Some Easy Recipes

There's nothing especially difficult about making rye bread at home.

I'm fairly new to making rye bread, so this is a page which will grow as I discover more recipes and techniques.

Bread machines are of course useful for making rye - or any other bread - but by no means essential. If you use a bread maker a lot it may earn its space in the kitchen - otherwise it is just more clutter!

Mixing rye bread and other types of bread by hand is part of the fun - in my view, at least!

Sieve together equal quantities of strong white flour and rye flour and a good teaspoonful of sea salt.
