Rye Bread

Wasn't the Cold Ham Water post a lovely distraction from the usual focus of edible food? Courtesy of Joel the Cook. Now, back to the status quo... with Rye Bread. We bought some rye flour at our favourite shop in Partick, which sells everything in plastic bags for low prices. The guy who runs the place buys it all in bulk and passes on the savings to his customers. He sells everything from bulk spices, flours, oats (even pinhead oats, mind you), and pet food too! We used to buy all of Basil's food there. He even has aquariams full of snakes and other reptiles and fish in the back. What an awesome shop. I think it's called something like Partick pet food and grain supply store.
We used this recipe for rye bread. We substituted treacle for molasses, as you do. I think we can call this a success. We definitely used the caraway seeds, and let me tell you that is VITAL to rye bread. We'll be enjoying this...

And WHICH store would this be?

Jessie* Mm I think this should be permanently on our to-do list. I'd like to make all the bread we eat, but just don't have enough time!

D* I passed it yesterday and saw the name of the store is The Garden Of Eden (with 1/2 of this missing :) and then it has some other signs that say pet food, grain, and spices.. it's like red and yellow, right on dumbarton road, next to Fresh Fruits From Around The Globe, which I frequent also.
But if you are still looking for pinhead oats, you are closer to Roots and Fruits on Great Western, the one next to Caledonia Books, and they have pinhead oats as well.

Ahh, well, yes. But yours sounded interesting. And ... food stores are, frankly, rather entertaining to visit. ;)
