Great flour and great value
on February 2, 2012
I live in a large metropolitan area, but can't find rye flour without driving all over town. And when it do find it, the price is astronomical. Buying from Amazon is a great solution for me.
My rye bread recipe only calls for two cups of rye flour for five loaves, so it takes me a little while to go through a bag of rye, but I pour these bags into a plastic storage container like I do with all my other flours and grains. That keeps the critters out of them and keeps the flour from getting too hot and rancid.
I probably won't need any more rye flour until later this year, but when I do, I'll be glad to buy another six-pack from Amazon.
Oh, and what about the product itself? This rye flour is so incredibly delicious! The flavor is really great and not overpowering.
6.5 cups warm water
3.5 tablespoons yeast (heaping)
3 tablespoons salt (level)
3 tablespoons caraway seed (heaping) - plus a few generous pinches on top of the loaves at baking
2 cups rye flour
10 cups unbleached white flour (level)
Mix the ingredients and let the dough sit overnight in the fridge in a 12qt plastic tub with a loose lid. Then form the loaves the next day, let them sit for 30 minutes, and then bake at 450* for 30 minutes (longer for bigger loaves).
It's the perfect deli rye. Mmmm!
