speaking of food

I don't know where my mom got the original recipe, but this is the rye bread that she's been making my entire life. Be warned, it's tasty but dense as hell. I'm also transcribing it verbatim, hence the lack of things like cooking times.

To make a bunch:

- 2 quarts water
- 1 large onion, ground
- 1 oz garlic powder
- 5 oz caraway seeds
- 6 pounds of rye flour
- 4 oz blue cheese
- 2 oz yeast

Mix well, cover, and keep in warm place overnight.

The next morning, add

- 1 gallon water
- 8 oz salt
- 16 pounds plain flour
- 3 oz lard

Mix well and let stand for 30 minutes. Knead, and make into loaves (makes 12 loaves). Let rise, bake at 350 degrees.

To make about three loaves

- 1 pint water
- 1 small onion
- 1/4 oz or 1 tbs garlic powder
- 1 1/4 oz (about 2 to 4 tbs) carraway seeds
- 1 oz blue cheese
- 1/2 oz yeast
- 5 c rye flour

Mix, let sit overnight.

And the next morning add:

- 1 quart water
- 3 tbs salt
- 14 to 15 cups flour
- 3/4 oz lard

Continue as above.

    I did Not Prime Time this year, which made me actually write something for the first time since Yuletide. It was fun! It was also a lot more low key…
