Sunday Roast Light Rye

Did you ever have an idea for a project come to mind while you were in your morning shower? Thats where this loaf originated to accompany a roast that we were planning on serving Sunday night.

Due to time limitations, I kept it simple and while not perfect, it was suitable. This is a 20% rye bread using a preferment, 70% hydration, and some caraway seeds.All of the rye flour was included in the preferment.Four hours after mixing the preferment, I could hear the sound of bubbles bursting, kind of like bacon cooking in a pan. I could bake this again with no problem.


54 g whole rye flour
26 g all purpose flour
49 g water at 90F    
1/8 tsp active dry yeast

Main Dough
200 g all purpose flour
140 g water at 90F
5 g kosher salt
1/4 tsp active dry yeast
All of preferment
1/2 Tbl (7.5 ml) caraway seeds

Comments, humor, and questions are welcome.
