Reikä Leipä - Postscript

I discovered that my rye bread should have been formed in a circle with a hole in it -- see the picture at this web site.

Makes sense since "Reikä" means "hole"... I have revised the recipe in the entry below.

Apparently in the "olden days", these breads would be threaded onto a horizontal pole and then the pole would be hung up under the ceiling in the farmhouse.
