of course its a spice from ancient africa! this spice is being used in place of pepper. you can make delicious rye spread out of it. look up the recipe "potato leek soup", lightly seasoned with rye. its so yummy!!!

Am I missing something? Rye is a grain or grass that is related to wheat and barley. Although it does not contain as much gluten as wheat it is still unsafe for gluten-free people. It is used in baking and in making rye whiskey as well as in kvass...

According to google.. Rye is "a wheatlike cereal plant (Secale cereale) that tolerates poor soils and low temperatures. Grains of this, used mainly for making bread or whiskey and for fodder."

I see it mostly commonly as an American or Canadian whiskey made with rye grain though. We use it often to make Manhattans!
