Homemade bread - a simple recipe for wheat and rye sourdough bread. Dates and coriander seeds, a delicious and aromatic addition to bread

Bread with date mousse and coriander is an aromatic, subtly sweet and tasty bread. After kneading and separating the dough into molds, we can leave it to grow on the kitchen counter or put it in the fridge overnight. Most often I practice the method with a long fermentation of bread in the refrigerator. Bread made from dough left to slowly rise in the fridge is tasty, better digestible and stays fresh longer.
