Corn Rye Bread

 

The word "bread" is associated in Russian culture with hospitality, bread being the most respected food .The tradition gave rise to the Russian word that expresses a person's hospitality: "khlebosolny".

Corn Rye Bread is the staple food in Europe, owing to its high levels of gluten, a source of protein. Gluten is a type of protein found in most grains, cereals, and breads.

Corn Rye Bread has a significance beyond mere nutrition. Fresh bread is prized for its taste, aroma, quality, appearance and texture. Retaining its freshness is important to keep it appetizing.

 

It is fairly common to combine rye with other grains and seeds.

Corn Rye Bread, particularly light rye are very closely associated with Jewish-American cuisine, particularly the delicatessen. The bulk of the flour is white wheat flour with a substantial portion of rye mixed in for color and flavor. The dough is often, but not necessarily, leavened, in whole or in part, with sourdough, but sometimes uses a small addition of citric acid or vinegar to achieve the lowered pH needed to neutralize the rye amylases; so-called "Jewish rye" is further seasoned with whole caraway seeds and glazed with an egg wash, and is traditionally associated with salted meats such as corned beef, pastrami, and (outside kosher circles) ham. The Jewish-American variety has Eastern European antecedents, including Russian-style brown bread and Riga-style rye bread.
