Rye Sourdough Loaves

Rye is rich in manganese, copper, magnesium, phosphorous, B-complex vitamins, dietary fibre, and phenolic antioxidant compounds. These types of bread are popular in continental Europe and the USA but are also now catching on here as people explore more culinary diversity.

Tourte au Seigle

A traditional French sourdough loaf containing 73% dark rye flour, it has a beautifully complex flavour which continues to develop as the loaf ages. It keeps exceptionally well. It has a very thick crust and a moist, almost sticky crumb. Traditionally served sliced thinly, it works very well with smoked salmon.

New York Deli Rye sourdough

Sourdough loaf made from a mixture of wheat and rye flour, flavoured with caraway seeds.

Foreign Extra Rye sourdough

This sourdough is our take on a Danish rugbrød. We call it “Foreign Extra Rye” and the clue why is in the photograph! Starting with Mungoswells 100% dark rye flour we add toasted sunflower seeds, malted rye chops and linseeds that have been soaked overnight in Guinness Foreign Extra Stout (the strong export version of this classic ale). Finally we add a touch of barley malt extract before bringing the whole thing together. The depth of flavour in this loaf is incredible! I couldn’t stop eating the test batch! I think it will be a real crowd pleaser!

100 % Dark Rye sourdough

This loaf is made with pure wholemeal rye flour and is hard to beat for flavour, digestibility and nutritional content.  It has a very dense, moist internal crumb and is good for making open sandwiches or serving with cheeses/charcuterie. It has an acetic tang, and keeps fresh for over a week in a bread bin or airtight container.

Rye sourdough

This sourdough is made with 70% wheat and 30% rye. It is a flavourful everyday loaf. The rye provides the dominant flavour but because it is mostly made from wheat it has a light texture and is not dense like the loaves made with 100% rye.
