Is There Any Real Old-Fashioned Sourdough Jewish Rye Bread on Long Island?

The heavy stuff. Not fluffy. Not caramel-colorized white bread with caraway seeds. I want that dense bread that fights back when you try to chew the crust. I'm in northern Nassau County, but I could drive quite a distance if I knew it would be worth it. And I'd go for some of the real corn rye, too.

  1. Find a Bread Alone booth at a NY Greenmarket. Their Sourdough Rye is very good.

      I was unimpressed by Bread Alone's sourdough. I could barely detect any tangy taste at all in the loaf I bought on Thanksgiving (in other words, fairly recently).

        They have a few sourdough loaves, which did you buy? I've found some of them quite "tangy". Did you buy the pre-sliced bread or the whole loaves?

          Presliced, but I can't recall the exact name. I'm pretty sure it was at least partially whole grain. We ate a couple of slices and wound up throwing the rest out.
