Sourdough rye bread invokes many childhood memories for me. There is something that feels like home in a loaf of warm, hearty, freshly made rye bread for every Northern European or Slavic person I now.

I have been baking rye bread for a while, using a slightly advanced recipe with a rye starter . This time, in my search for a simply perfect rye bread, I have finally found it. Knead for three minutes, let rise overnight, bake, them enjoy.

To bake this bread, you need a Dutch oven. A Dutch oven can be used to cook a large array of dishes, so it is never a waste buying one. I use the top part of my Dutch oven as a frying pan, too.

    Instructions

    1. Combine all ingredients, except for the oil, in a large, metal-free bowl, using a wooden or a silicone spatula. Knead for a few minutes. The dough would be thick and sticky.
    2. Leave the dough in a bowl, cover with cloth and let rise overnight or for 8-12 hours.
    3. After the time has passed, preheat the oven to 450degrees F.
    4. Place the empty, covered Dutch oven into the oven for 15 minutes.
    5. Gently, take the Dutch oven out. Sprinkle some flour on its bottom. Gently transfer the dough into the Dutch oven and pour 1 cup of water + olive oil to coat the dough on top. Cover with the lid. Bake for 25 minutes.
    6. Remove the lid and bake for 10-12 additional minutes.
    7. Take the bread out of the Dutch oven. Cover the bread with a towel and allow it to gently cool before serving.
