beautiful breads...

Came across this nice little description and pictorial on how to make a light rye bread: George's Light Rye Bread Recipe.

I actually haven't made a real yeasty bread yet - though I'm most interested in the whole-grain sourdough variety... (I have made many a quick-bread, flat-bread, cracker, and even whole-wheat soda bread on the BBQ)

I read an amazing book that I borrowed from the library on the topic called
The Bread Book: A Natural, Whole-Grain Seed-to-Loaf Approach to Real Breads by Thom Leonard.

This guy Thom is very hard-core. He basically describes how to source out good seeds, grow your own patch of wheat, mill it yourself, and make your own sourdough bread! I was impressed :-) Now this book is out of print and consequently very expensive.

Back to the web:

This recipe sounds good: Black Bean and Chipotle Bread
(from Sourdough Home: "A Exploration of Sourdough")

~ more on bread later!
