This is an authentic sourdough recipe for those who want to be rewarded for their efforts. Makes two loaves.
Since I've been given a sourdough starter, I've been making sourdoughs like crazy so the starter doesn't take over my fridge. This is the best of the wholemeal ones I've tried. It rose nicely, but that probably has something to do with me kneading the heck out of it and also me being patient with the dough. I read some advice about sourdough rye, and it said to let it rise for 2-3 hours on each rise. I didn't let this loaf go that long, but pretty close. Anyway, I recommend this one to those who like rye bread. - 14 Jul 2008
Can anyone tell me why you have to throw away 1/2 the starter every day when feeding it. It seems so wasteful. Thank you. Fabulous recipe - 30 Jun 2016
Something else. really good! I have a 33 year old starter, so I have been using sourdough for quite a number of years. I did an egg wash,( one whole egg with a tsp. of water, mixed) and brushed it on the bread before baking, then added a sprinkling of caraway seed. It was really good. I made one big loaf instead of two. - 14 Jul 2008
