It’s swap time! Christianna this month proposed a wild rice stuffing. Almost immediately I decided to swap wild rice for wheat or rye berries. I thought for a while and then it came to me: pumpernickel bread.
I am not talking about american pumpernickel bread, I’m talking about the original pumpernickel bread. The German version. While pumpernickel bread over here is pretty much bread whit molasses for dark coloring, the German version is much more like a pudding than it is a bread. The German version includes all sorts of berries and seeds and they are cooked slowly in a steamy oven. The end result is a sort of steamed grain pudding.
A slice of this bread with jam or marmalade is a great way to start your morning . And a slice of this with ham at lunch is going to keep you full for quite a while. Also it is great with smoked or cured salmon.
