next to black bread, limpa is the most familiar Swedish rye bread among home bakers. Every household would have its own recipe, usually passed down in the family. Limpa is a sweeter rye bread than most and is always made for the holidays. Use for the ritual “dipping in the kettle”—lowering slices into hot broth on Christmas Eve. This bread is fantastic with dinner, and great toasted. I Love it with a nice thick stew or sauce to soak up with the bread. It never lasts long in our house. Of course I have taken a friends family recipe and made it vegan and adjusted it for the bread machine
