Number of Servings: 26


    2 cups milk
    1/4 cup shortening (vegetable)
    1/4 cup margarine
    1/3 cup molassess
    1 tsp anise extract or 2 tsp anise seeds
    1 tbsp caraway seeds
    1 tbsp fennel seeds
    3 tbsp marmalade (or 2 tsp orange rind reconstituted in 1/4 cup orange juice)
    3 cups rye flour
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    2 packets yeast


Heat the milk over the stove (do not let boil) and melt the margarine and shortening in it, adding the molasses and spices and marmalade.
When homogeneously mixed, transfer to a bowl and add the flour and add yeast gradually until thoroughly mixed. (dough should be warm, but cool enough to handle without harming yourself. If it is too hot the yeast will die)
Cover with a cloth and let sit 60 minutes to rise a little.
Come back and punch it back into place (use some muscle, but don't be too violent) and then transfer to two greased bread tins.
Bake at 400 for 45 minutes to an hour (humidity, flour type, yeast type and ovens account for the fifteen minute discrepency. Be sure to check your bread after forty-five minutes)
Remove when the tops are dark. Serve with butter and black coffee!

You can also use these ingredients in a bread machine, just cool the margarine-milk-etc mixture before adding it to the machine (machines hate hot ingredients).
