This homemade Swedish rye bread is easy to make if you follow the step-by-step directions. It is a traditional bread of Sweden - laced with brown sugar, molasses, caraway seeds, and orange peel. Try it toasted with lots of sweet butter or sprinkle it with grated Cheddar cheese and broil until cheese is melted and browned. It's also good for a simple ham and cheese sandwich!
