Russian Black Bread Recipe

I love dark bread especially during the winter.

I can find rye bread at the grocery store.  Russian Black bread? Not so much.

When I do, Russian Black Bread is too expensive to use as everyday sandwich bread. 

With the help of my trusty bread maker, I learned to make Russian Black Bread for pennies instead of buying it for several dollars.
