Rye flour. Ground from whole rye berries, rye flour is sold in white-, medium-, and dark-colored varieties. The medium-colored flour is the one most commonly used to make delicious breads, rolls, and crackers.

Rye A plant that produces a dark grayish-brown cereal grain that has a very assertive and hearty flavor with a slightly bitter taste. Rye is available as whole kernels (berries), flakes, or processed flour. The rye berries have the outer hull removed, making then ready to be cooked, although they require longer cooking times than other grains. Soaking the berries overnight will decrease the cooking time. Rye berries are used in stews, rice, and vegetable stir-fries. Rye flakes will cook faster and can be used in a variety of dishes, such as soups and stews. Rye flour, which is very low in gluten, is available as dark, medium or light varieties, but most often food stores sell only a medium variety or at times, they may also have the stone-ground rye. Rye can be blended with wheat to create rye-wheat flour that decreases the strong flavor of the rye. Source:…
