Make this into loaves, rolls, or buns. I had posted a sourdough dark rye bread recipe, which was good, but I started fooling with it, and like the versatility of this lighter version. For one thing, the dark rye dough was so heavy, it wore me out kneading it. This recipe produced the best, fluffiest rolls I have ever made, just like the ones a restraurant makes that I frequent. I fill up on the rolls, then wind up taking most of my dinner home in a to-go box. This recipe makes 2 medium loaves, or 14 dinner rolls.
