Making rye bread in Grimentz


Rye bread, an ancient tradition...
Rye has been grown in Valais for centuries and making rye bread is one of the most ancestral regional traditions.
This region with its mountainous land and extreme temperatures make is suitable to rye. In the past, rye bread used to be kept for several months: the village's communal oven was lit 2 or 3 times a year for the inhabitants to bake their stock of bread.
