Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • 'Pickle juice' means the juice from a jar of pickles. The proportion of pickle juice to water can be varied as desired, so long as the total liquid is 2 cups.
  • Similarly for the dry ingredients: 3 cups white flour, 1 cup whole-wheat flour, and 1 1/2 cups of any flour substitute will work well as long as the total is 5 1/2 cups.
  • If your bread machine doesn't have 'sandwich' and 'three-pound' settings, you'll have to experiment with your settings.

This bread has great flavor - kind of nutty with a tang of dill. I mostly just use my machine to mix dough, which I did here. Mine will only make a 2lb. loaf anyway...It does the first rise, and...

I was wondering if a little more yeast was added if it would raise higher.

Makes great grilled cheese sandwich.
