Bread from the skerries a'la Raija and Erik from Finland
First, some facts: Erik and Raija I have known for many years. Erik and I fished together several times. Erik lives half in Denmark and half in Finland, from where the recipe comes. Beer malt - Rye Malt - also comes from Finland. One use the beer malt to produce a light beer - almost without alcohol - but read even more about this on the website.
Procedure without liability: Warm buttermilk to 28 degrees in a saucepan or in the microwave. Pour the buttermilk into a large bowl. Crumble the yeast and mix well. Add the remaining ingredients: salt, syrup, beer malt, wheat bran, rye flour and wheat flour, stirring with a heavy wooden spoon. The dough should only knead gently together. It is slightly sticky. Save a little flour to sprinkle on the kitchen table.
Roll out the dough on the kitchen table and form a short and thick sausage. Divide the dough in two and then roll two sausages and put them into two 2-liter molds greased with butter or olive oil. Brush well with water syrup. Cover with a tea towel and leave to rise for 1½ to 2 hours at room temperature. Prick with fork holes in two rows along the surface of the bread.
Preheat oven to 175 degrees. Bake loaves in middle of oven on a rack for about 2 hours. When the loaves are baked about 1½ hours, brush the loaves with syrup water and continue baking for about another 30 minutes. Let the loaves be cool overnight, only covered in a clean tea towel. Cut best the day after with a good bread knife. Cold store the loaves. Can vacuum packed and frozen.
Serving: Used as plain rye bread, but has a different taste because of beer malt.
Garnish: Yes! what garnish one rye bread with? Make yourself your own experience.
Drink: It depends on when you eat rye bread - breakfast - dinner - or evening.
Tips: I could not wait for the day after, so I buttered me a piece of bread with a hot fish fillet, remulade and lemon garnished with cress. It was just the thing for a lunch.
The option of licorice granules can be recommended for cheese sandwiches with jam.
