Baking bread is a delightfully rewarding cooking journey, watching what was once a blob of dough emerge as a warm loaf from the oven. This recipe is great for beginners. It’s easy and doesn’t require fancy equipment, but give yourself some lead time as the dough does need to sit in the refrigerator overnight. The texture and flavors are what is really special about this loaf. The barberries give you a tangy fruity burst in every bite, and the caraway is a perfect complement. Enjoy this bread toasted with your favorite cup of tea or with a hearty soup or stew.

    Very interesting bread which is incredibly easy and undemanding! The barberries are REALLY tart. I was startled with my first bite of the bread! But the flavor grows on you. I plan to use less barberries next time. As written, it uses the whole jar of barberries, Next time I will use half the amount, The caraway seed is a warm, complementary flavor. And those little barberries are nutrient powerhouses, so be adventurous and bake this bread!

    Is there a way to adapt this recipe to make it gluten free? It sounds amazing, and I have a ton of barberries.
