1 package (1/4 oz.) active dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 cup warm water
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons caraway seeds
3/4 cup sourdough starter
1 1/2 cups medium rye flour
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
melted butter for brushing

In a large bowl, combine yeast, sugar and warm water. Let stand
10 minutes. With wooden spoon or mixer at low speed, stir in salt,
oil, caraway seeds and sourdough starter. Beat in 1/2 cup each
rye flour and all-purpose flour. Add 1 cup rye flour and beat well.
Gradually stir in all but 1 cup all purpose flour.

remaining flour as needed to make a stiff dough. Wash and grease
large bowl. Place dough in greased bowl, cover and let rise in a
