The Naked Bakery Not-So-Dark Rye Bread is made with sourdough, and refined wheat clothed in dark rye. It has a nice, crispy outside, and a chewy inside filled with beautiful classic air pockets. It’s slightly denser and heartier than other bread, but has a wonderfully pleasant earthy taste with hints of sweetness and muskiness. There’s also that subtle tang from the sourdough that rounds out the flavor beautifully.
The Not-So-Dark Rye Bread from Naked Bakery is perfect to enjoy simply, with some butter and jam. It’s also great to make sandwiches with. Try on with some smoked salmon, arugula, white cheese, and cherry tomatoes—delicioso!
The Naked Bakery is a discovery of which The Bow Tie Duck has always been proud. Found on Instagram by our founders at the height of the quarantine period in 2020, they were immediately captured by the distinct rustic look and the beautiful irregularity of the online bakery’s breads. No loaf ever looks exactly the same, but this was its main appeal—embracing its humble warmth, exuding a feeling akin to sinking into your couch after a long day. Like coming home.
Baked fresh on morning of expected delivery day. Best consumed upon arrival, but you can store it on the kitchen counter at room temperature for up to two days. If you’ve sliced into it, you can leave it cut side down on the chopping board. You may also place the sliced loaf in a ceramic bread box or a clean paper bag. Never store bread in the refrigerator, or else it will dry out. By the third day, you can place the bread in a large ziplock bag, but please note that the crust will soften and your bread will require toasting to refresh it. For storage up to three months in the freezer, wrap your bread in parchment paper and place it back in the ziplock bag.
