So, what is rye?

Rye is a cereal grain that has been used in traditional cuisine for centuries. This robust, flavorful grain is particularly popular in Northern and Eastern Europe, where it is commonly used to make bread, crackers, and other baked goods. Rye flour is darker and denser than wheat flour, giving baked goods a distinctive, slightly sour flavor and a dense texture. Rye is also an excellent source of fiber, protein, and minerals, making it a nutritious addition to any diet. With its unique flavor and nutritional benefits, rye is a versatile ingredient that can add depth and character to a wide range of dishes.
