German black bread was a staple during WWI and WWII. Its extensive nutritive value and long shelf life, as well as its inexpensive cost, made it the perfect food for the army to provide its fighters. Also known as pumpernickel, the bread is still enjoyed
I remember my grandma making this bread, it was always served with kapusta,(russian cabbage) or reuben sandwiches, or mainly as a dinner bread. It will go perfect with my russian sauerkraut and sausage dinner tonight!
