Expert Tips

Pumpernickel bread is a heavier dark bread. Our recipe uses both rye and whole wheat flours. The molasses, cocoa and coffee not only add flavor, but they also increase the deep brown color.

Here's your chance to make a great Deli Corned Beef Sandwich: Spread slices of pumpernickel bread with a spicy mustard. Pile one slice high with slices of corned beef, drained canned sauerkraut and Swiss cheese, and add the other slice. Serve with big, crisp kosher dill pickles.
