Rye

Rye is a type of grain that is closely related to wheat and barley. It's known for its hardiness, able to grow well in poor soils where other grains might struggle. Rye has a deep, earthy flavor and is often used in bread-making, for example in rye-bread (Dutch: roggebrood), which is commonly eaten by the farmers. Also Rye is used in other specialities, such as black pudding. The color of rye bread is usually darker than that of wheat bread, and it has a denser texture.

Farmers like growing rye because it can survive in tough weather. Also, rye plants can help prevent soil erosion because their roots are strong and go deep into the ground.
