Directions:
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in molasses, sugar, salt and caraway seed. Stir in the rye flour until smooth. Work in the melted shortening. With hands, work in enough of the white flour to make a dough easy to handle. Turn on to floured board and knead until smooth, about ten minutes. Place dough in clean and oiled bowl, cover and let rise in warm place until double in bulk. Divide dough into two loaves and shape into round smooth loaves and place on a large baking sheet that has been sprayed with non stick coating and sprinkled with corn meal. Flatten out the loaves slightly. Cover and let rise in warm place until double in size. Preheat oven to 375. Mix the egg white with the water and brush the loaves. Bake until done about 30-40 minutes.
