ISO of rye bread with caraway seeds in Edmonton
I think I have seen this type of loaf in the past but over the last couple of weeks I have not found it in any of the supermarkets or bakeries I have gone to. It may have been called Winnipeg rye but the loaf I picked up at Safeway last week-end did not have the additional seeds and flavour.
What I am looking for is a loaf of rye which is ususally commercially made and comes slicd but with plenty of caraway seeds throughout and on top of the bread.
I am particularly interested now that my wife made it out to Cosco and brought back a package of the Dunn's smoked meat packed in 6 or 8 packages that one pops into boiling water for a few minutes and then cut open and serve.
Enough for one "jaw breaker" or two "reasonably" sized sandwiches.
Thank you for all of your suggestions.
No luck thus far.
The pumpernickel suggestion is a good one but not what I am looking for. I used to buy "Black Russian" pumpernickel from the Bagel Bin some time ago when I wanted a "meaty" bread but not with smoked meat in mind.
Now that I have "hit" my usual "haunts" I suspect the type of commercially baked bread is just not popular and is no longer carried.
I am looking for a commercially baked product. I only say "commercially baked" because if I buy bread I usually want it unsliced and this one was definitely sliced but full of caraway seeds or something similar that from time to time you got that particular "splash" of taste when you bit into one. It was the colour and general size of what I see sold as medium rye in most supermarkets.
When I spoke to the people in the bakeries at Save-On-Foods, Safeway and Sobey's all recommended the Winnipeg Style Rye as the only rye with the "seeds". Ok bread and that is what we used but not the same.
Cobbs' two types of rye are not what I was thinking of.
In any event the Dunn's packets of "boil in the bag" smoked meat are quite good particularly when compared last evening with the "Montreal Style Smoked Meat" I bought at the deli at Sobey's.
I expect that will be a regular acquisition any time we shop at Costco particularly when one gets constructed out in the West End.
If I do locate what I have been looking for by "happenstance" I will post.

Classic Wpg rye is made by City Bread Co and pops up periodically in stores around the city....maybe contact them diretly in Wpg and see what they suggest....if you get desparate enough I know Schwartz's in Montreal will ship their smoked meat and their bread anyone in Canada. Wpg rye is still best though. I go to Wpg often...maybe I should be importing it . :-)
Schwartz's is at http://www.schwartzsdeli.com/index_en... to order online.
Yes, maybe you should [smile]
I'll keep my eyes open and content myself for the time being with the variant on Winnipeg rye that I have been able to find to date locally...mind you I am tempted by your Schwartzs' suggestion.
I have been pleasantly surprised by the Dunn's smoked meat from Costco and that will be supper this evening.
Brings back memories. When a child my Dad introduced me to smoked meat at Ben's on de Maisoneuve, as a miscreant teen-ager we often ended up at Dunn's on Ste. Catherine ....why on earth would I need a slab of cheese cake after all of that beer?...and as a university student I tended to go to the "holy grail" of smoked meat, Schwartzs on "the Main"
I second the European bakeries, as I think I've seen something similar to what you are looking for at the Portuguese bakery on 118th. As well, I've seen plenty of rye and pumpernickel breads/rolls/buns etc... at Cobs.. Might be worth a try.
P.S. Can't wait to hear about the sandwich!
