Sour Dough Onion Rye Bread

Got the "sour" part right!

Oh, my goodness.  My friend, Melissa, gave me some sour dough starter about a month ago.  I've been nurturing it along and finally decided to make bread this week., inspired by her recipe.   It was definitely sour!!! Almost like vinegar.  I toasted it and added some jam to sweeten it up.  It didn't raise very much.  I had cut the recipe in half to make enough for one loaf but then put the dough in two smaller loaf tins.  I will have to figure out how to make it a little less tart next time.  Wow!
