BECAUSE THIS LOAF WEIGHS FIVE POUNDS
This is definitely not the rye you buy at the grocery store. This P.E.C. bakery, a regular at the Evergreen Brick Works farmers’ market every Saturday, bakes a super-dense 100 PER CENT RyE, naturally leavened and sized like one of the tablets of the Ten Commandments. It’s baked in a wood-burning oven two days before market to give the loaf time to cure— like how a steak finishes cooking after it’s off the grill. All you have to do is slice it thin and make your own smørrebrød. $20. 550 Bayview Ave., no phone.
