First, I am forever indebted to my friend Olga for the hints and history on this bread.

The bread is supposed to taste slightly sweet and malty with an underlying sourness from the rye starter. This was my first try.

    • Hi Linda!
      I am working on a recipe because I believe mine is flawed and does not reflect the real Borodinsky. It is supposed to taste sweet and sour, mine was sweet but lacked that acidity. That is why I am currently studying a book on baking from the 50s and try to learn more about developing a healthy rye sourdough. Will report back.
