I'd been planning to make homemade rye bread since last June when we got a grain mill. We love rye grilled cheese sandwiches with some roast beef added... yummy!
Most of the store bought rye bread I found had a substantial amount of all-purpose flour in it, but I wanted something heartier. I make my rye bread recipe using mostly rye flour. Since rye doesn't have much gluten, I prefer to add some additional wheat gluten to hold the loaf together. However, rye bread is very versatile and it's perfectly fine to choose the rye-to-wheat ratio you prefer, depending on the purpose of your bread (sandwich bread vs. soup bread). :)
Here you can see the difference between my regular 100% whole wheat bread (left) and this rye bread (right). This loaf of rye bread was made with 2 1/2 cups rye flour and only 1/2 cup wheat flour, so it's fairly dark. Substituting molasses for the honey would make it even darker, if that's what you prefer! :)
Do you have a favorite recipe that calls for rye flour? I'd love to hear about it! :)
