There are many ways to make rye bread. Every recipe seems to contain varying proportions of medium or pumpernickel (dark rye) flour and bread flour. Like most other bread recipes, rye bread can be made with a wet (sponge) or dry starter or with a sourdough starter. But however you approach it, rye bread made with authentic rye flour and given a slow rise will have more flavor than anything you are likely to have tasted. One tip: Leave out the caraway seeds, unless you just can’t resist them
