Rieska (Finnish Rye Bread)

Versions of this traditional rye bread abound in Finland, ranging from crisp and cracker-like to thick and hearty. This is in the latter camp: a slightly dense bread that's great for toasting and slathering with jam or honey.

Note: Stone ground dark rye flour is available from Bob's Red Mill.
