Slow fermented wheat and rye sourdough bread
German style wholegrain rye bread. Great with savoury toppings or toasted with honey.
Wondering what to do with a lot of active rye sourdough starter I experimented with using it in combination with Organic Three Malts & Sunflower Brown flour. The following recipe involves preparing a sourdough starter/production sourdough the day before baking the loaves. This recipe combines using natural yeast in the starter with using some active dried yeast when it comes to baking the loaves. This combination helps me produce a couple of loaves with a nice texture and flavour when there’s not enough time to work through all the usual processes needed to produce a ‘pure’ sourdough loaf.
This uses a double kneaded, double risen method. If you have strongly rising types of flour, you could get away with a single kneading and a single rising. This is a variation of a recipe first devised by Sonya Romane.
This uses a mixture of organic white flour, wholemeal and light rye to make a delicious savoury loaf - that is also amazing with cheese or marmalade!
A fabulously easy, no kneed loaf using dark rye flour and cracked rye pieces - based on a recipe by Trine Hahnemann. (NB: this loaf also uses white flour to lighten the texture slightly.)
Delicious nutritious loaf with real depth of flavour.
This is a recipe for a delicious danish rye bread. It's a family recipe so keep it a secret ;)
Dark, delicious, easy-to-make rye sourdough. Ideal for working people; start it in the evening, eat it for breakfast. I use a mixer with dough hook, but I guess you could equally hand knead it. No, I haven'the forgotten the salt; I don't usually put any in my loaves.
I’m talking about my beloved recipe for Russian Black Bread, a pumpernickel bread for people who think that standard pumpernickel with it’s paltry seven ingredients is just not trying hard enough.
A deliciously simple and quick loaf from your bread machine using sourdough starter: great when you haven't got time or patience to work out a loaf with your hands. A recipe inspired by the Eastern European style of sourdough bread. Ideally made with Shipton Mill Light Rye flour. Tested and tried on Panasonic breadmaker (SP - ZB2502) but should work well on any other quality bread maker.
Traditional danish rye
This recipe is tried and tested using the breadmaker, but could no doubt be oven baked instead. The vitamin C powder allows the use of a higher proportion of rye (for extra colour and flavour) without preventing the loaf rising properly. If all goes to plan you get a lovely soft loaf, excellent rise and a very rustic flavour.

Just delicious! Mix of three flours and addition of chopped rye makes this bread one of a kind. I ate the whole loaf in one go!
Not quite pumpernickel, but slices smoothly. The cornmeal rounds off the tang of the rye. "For persons of sedentary habits and dyspeptic turn, no food is more wholesome" as quoted in 'The Philosophy of Housekeeping by J.B. Lyman (1869).
For now or later, these refrigerator biscuits are just the thing to enjoy with a cup of coffee. Easy to make, and easy to bake, gently spicy and aromatic, the recipe could be altered with your favourite spices, or add a few nuts, or dried fruit. Makes about 30.

This is a variation on Richard Bertinet's Bacon and Red onion bread but uses smoked cheese (thus suitable for some vegetarians) and is fortified with sourdough batter. It makes lovely toast and would be great with a hearty soup.

One of my favourite loaves with a subtle taste of rye, sour notes from the leaven and great texture from a long rise.
This is based on a traditional soda bread recipe but with the addition of light rye flour or, and this is my favourite, Orcadian 'Bere' flour. Delicious fresh, with marmalade or cheese, good toasted the next day.
Simple, natural and healthy loaf of bread
These delicious Scandinavian style, wafer thin, rye and spelt crisp breads are perfect for eating with dips and pate. They store well and are great fun to make expecially if you make them with a buddy. One rolls the dough out and the other bakes.
Basic method that can be used to make many variations of proper Danish rye bread, far better than anything you can buy in the shops. Danish rye bread is of course excellent with all types of strong cheeses, all salty food, pickled herring, yellow pea soup, Danish sausages - and you can use it to make rye bread soup should you feel thus inclined.
