Place dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix thoroughly with a spoon or spatula.

Add molasses to warm water and stir thoroughly.

Add water to dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Dough will be wet, sticky and sloppy.

Cover with plastic wrap (We have found that shower caps available in dollar stores are perfect for covering dough in bowls. They are inexpensive and reusable). Set aside in warm place for 12 to 18 hours to rise.

Dough mixture should now be bubbly, wet and sticky. Heavily dust a bread board (cutting board or whatever) with flour. Dump dough on that surface and fold together. DO NOT KNEAD! no-knead rye Cover with well floured cloth (Not terry cloth). Allow to rise for 2 hours.
