Bernard Clayton's Red River Pumpernickel

Bernard has never disappointed me,  and you know how I'm a sucker for most dark, hearty,  and European style breads.

I'm embarking this morning on his Red River recipe pages 196-199 in his New Complete Book of Breads. My sister had bought a box of the red river cereal and gave me enough for a few loaves.  

Here's the soaker with molasses.  I'll stone grinder the red winter wheat shortly and update with pics later today.

The finished loaf. I halved the recipe, so it's not a full loaf.  Smells great! Looks great.  

Next time I'll go with a full loaf with this one.
