My Try at Eric's Fave Rye
The recent resurfacing of Eric's Fave Rye combined with my having both good rye and First Clear flour from Stan's book testing which I wanted to begin using. So..I gave it a stab and the results turned out pretty good. My key "error" was not having caraway seeds so I substituted mixed seeds (cereales) as an alternative. Flavor is really nice. Now I need some pastrami!
Other than the seeds I basically followed Eric's recipe. However, I did bake at 375F and used a cloche for the first fifteen minutes followed by 28 minutes uncovered. If I had it to do over I think I would leave the bread in the oven for five minutes after turning off the oven with the door ajar to give a bit more crust.
