A sweetened rye with orange peel and anise seed. It's wonderful toasted which brings out those flavors and great topped with cream cheese and a good orange marmalade. I do have a recipe for that to share, too! Maybe we can encourage others to make it...
The recipe was a wedding present from my mom's best friend in 1965, and I have not shared it outside the family. Until now.
I've been making 40 loaves which sell out in less than 90 minutes, so clearly there is demand for this and it draws customers to our Holiday Bazaar. I'm 78 and want to recruit others to learn to bake this so that we can carry on this People's Specialty SIGNATURE item. I have ordered the rye flour and will provide it to those who volunteer to make loaves for this year's bazaar. Each batch makes 4 loaves.
Please sign up here or on the gold sheets in the lobby to bake with me and take my contact card (you may also reach out to Melissa at [email protected] for the contact information). I've designated 4 dates, 2 afternoons and 2 evenings in my Garden Home behind Friendship Village. We'll bake, talk and sample and you can take a loaf home to enjoy!
