Dill Gherkin Bread

    3 hours 5 minutes

    Here's an unusual herb bread - as well as dried dill, it uses an actual pickled cucumber (gherkin). If you want an extra strong taste, substitute 1/2 cup of the pickle juice for 1/2 cup water.

    This is a fantastic bread for pickle lovers. The second time I made it, I added a bit more diced pickle and upped the pickle juice-to-water ratio to 3:1, then reduced the salt by 1/4 tsp. This is the perfect bread for roast beef, tuna salad, chicken salad, and innumerable other sandwiches.  -  20 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My wife loved this bread. Great bread for sandwiches. I chose to set my crust to a darker setting for a richer crust. For the kids I chose to use onion powder instead of chopped onions. Both came out great.  -  17 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Check bread during kneading cycle, I had to add more flour. Makes the best sandwiches, ever. It has been 5 years now that I have made this. So this is an add on. Make sure the juice and the pickles are at room temp. I add extra dill weed. Yes, for 5 years I have been making this bread, and love it. I use the dough cycle only.
