Russian Black Bread Recipe

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

That looks delicious. I've been looking for a good, coarse, hearty dark bread. I'll have to expand the recipe to four loaves. Looks great!
Cranberry Morning - It is a good hearty dark bread. I LOVE using it for grilled cheddar cheese sandwiches.
