People are telling me about rye flour, ergotism, and LSD. Apparently there are reasons to believe the Salem witch trials were caused by ergotism. It sounds to me like I don't have much to worry about since millers have stopped grinding the ergots up with the rye but I am not sure.
Do I need to be concerned about keeping rye flour for too long? Is baking sourdough rye bread dangerous (because the wet, rye flour sits out for so long)? Are there any special considerations to keep in mind when working with rye?
