Rye Test Week 3--Wroclaw Trencher Bread (Poland) and Weinheim Carrot Bread (Germany)
Who knew there were so many different styles of rye bread? This is just the third week of testing and I am continued to be amazed and impressed by the recipes in the new yet to be published book on international rye breads.
This week's breads included one from Poland called Wroclaw Trencher bread which is meant to used as a plate to hold your meal. This was by far the most sour tasting of any of the breads to date and would go great with a nice beef stew.
I have to admit I wasn't sure how I would feel about a bread with carrots in it since I'm not a big fan of carrot cake, but you really don't taste them very much. This bread includes a whole bunch of seeds and other goodies and is a real nice and hearty loaf. Definitely something I can see being very popular in Germany.
So far all of the breads I have made have been well received by my own gang of taste testers and I look forward to baking the next batch this week.
