Scandinavian rye bread

By The Hairy Bikers

Any bread made predominantly from flour milled from rye grains. Rye flour gives the bread a slight acidity, and a proportion of the flour is often fermented separately until it develops a sour aroma and flavour. It is then mixed in with the dough, in order to enhance this characteristic.

Typical ingredients include rye flour, water salt, yeast, and sometimes wheat flour, caraway seeds and malt.
