    Cook’s Question
ANSWER Dale wanted a recipe for rye bread with
caraway seeds. Thanks to Dorothy Stoms, Deerfield, N.J.,
for sending a recipe from Pillsbury’s Bake-Off. It is a good,
old-fashioned bread with hint of caraway or anise. The
secret to moistness is buttermilk. She writes for delicious
caraway rye breads, substitute caraway seed for anise
3 cups rye flour
Vs cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1 teaspoon caraway seed or anise seed
Vs teaspoon baking soda
2 packages active dry yeast
1 cup buttermilk or sour milk
Vi cup shortening
1 cup warm water
3 to 3Vs cups all-purpose flour
In large mixer bowl, combine rye flour, brown sugar, salt,
orange peel, caraway seed, baking soda, and dry yeast.
In saucepan, heat buttermilk, molasses, and shortening
until buttermilk is warm.
Shortening does not need to melt. Add warm water and
buttermilk mixture to rye flour mixture. Blend at lowest
speed until moistened, beat 3 minutes at medium speed.
By hand, stir in flour to form a stiff dough. Knead on
floured surface until smooth and elastic; about 5 minutes.
Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover; let
rise in warm place until light and doubled in size, 1 to IVz
Punch down dough. Shape into two round loaves. Place
on opposite corners of greased cookie sheet. Cover; let
rise in warm place until doubled in size, about one hour.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes or until loaf is a
deep golden brown.

ANSWER Donna Beyerbach, Oakdale, wanted to know
how to make garlic powder from homegrown garlic bulbs.
Thanks to Audrey Minns who sent directions for both
garlic and onion powders.
Mince onion or garlic and completely dehydrate it. (It
must be very dry like instant minced onion or garlic pur
chased in a store). Put dried minced onion or garlic in
blender or food processor container and whirl until pow
dered; or crush to a powder in a mortar and pestle. One
tablespoon of homemade onion powder equals 2 table
spoons dried minced onions, which equal one medium
onion. A scant ’/« teaspoon of homemade garlic powder
equals one medium clove.
For onion or garlic salt, mix together 2 tablespoons
onion or garlic powder with V * cup saltstore in a salt
shaker. Make only small amounts of this to retain flavor.
