   lightly oiled bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled. Deflate the dough,
   divide into 4 pieces and form into oval shapes. Cover with buttered plastic
   wrap and allow to double, about 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 425F. Slash
   tops of loaves with a razor blade and bake for 30-to-45 minutes. Makes 4
   Loaves FOR THE RYE STARTER: Mix water and rye flour and let sit all day. In
   the evening, add 3 ounces all-purpose flour.
