World Bread Day 2012 - Lime Rye Wreaths

Yes ! The Bread Party is here again !

World Bread Day 2012 - 7th edition! Bake loaf of bread on October 16 and blog about it!

The World Bread Day is taking place today : October 16th 2012.
I want to thank again zorra from kochtopf Cooking site for organizing all these wonderful events and for hosting So many Breads from around the world in her site for all these years. It's the Best Bread Cookbook ever every year again.

These Rye Wreats are easy to make, have a nice shape and color and are crispy. Adding Lime rind (a tangy note) and nigella seeds was new to me. Fun to make and eat, try them !

Lime Rye Wreaths
The recipe is based (with some changes) on the Cookbook :
Exotic Desserts From The French Caribbean/1997 KONEMANN

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the rye and white flour.
3. Add the yeast and water.
4. Knead for about 10-20 minutes. (yes, it's long time for incorporate a lot of air).
5. Add the salt and continue kneadind another 5 minutes.
6. Add the grated lime rind and mix just until it is incorporated.
7. Shape the dough into a ball, cover and let rise for one hour.

13. Brush the surface with water and spinkle with nigella seeds on top.

* Warp in a cloth and the Wreaths will stay fresh for a week.

Nice ones!
But I want to ask you about rye flour. Is it whole rye flour or white rye flour?
