Swedes have always made hearty, highly flavored breads and rye always seems to play a part, the foundation for many avenues of baking exploration. Aunt Violet was one of my paternal grandfather's sisters. This is her recipe 'from home'. It seems each of the 7 Moller children brought fragments of family recipes with them through Ellis Island in 1912. The overall, lapsed time is long - 4 hours, because of the rising and baking time - the actual labor involved is about 15 minutes. Following is a basic - and unique - family recipe for an every day Swedish country-style rye bread.
