    Happy New year! I love your recipes and have both your books. I can finally bake, confident that my finished product will turn out as anticipated. I’m wondering if you have a recipe for seeded medium rye bread. It’s my husband’s preferred bread and all the rye bread that I have purchased seems dry from the get go or so expensive I’m afraid to spend the money only to be disappointed. Thank you so much for all your hard work.

      Hi there- I do not have a recipe for seeded rye bread specifically, no. But I find that with most bread recipes, you want to make sure to watch the rise time as breads will rise faster at higher altitudes. For rye in particular, I would suggest that you go with a combo of rye flour and regular flour instead of full rye- the rye will make for a dryer loaf in the end, so sometimes a combo will help make it a bit softer. I'd start with 50/50! I hope that helps! I may dive deeper into other flour bread-types this year so keep an eye out!
