In our pantry, we always have a bunch of crackers ready. You can usually keep them for a long time, and it is an easy snack when you suddenly get hungry. What is always the case with us, haha. But seriously: it is convenient to have them in your house.
When it comes to ready-to-eat crackers, our preference goes out to the better organic brands. For example, we find the crackers (with sesame) of the Eden brand delicious. However, there are so many varieties (and extra flavors) to choose from. LifeFood, for example, also has some delicious flavors in their assortment. There are also gluten-free crackers, raw food crackers, and rye, spelt, linseed, or ‘whatever’ crackers on the market. Something for everyone.
The other nice thing about crackers is that you can easily make them yourself, and you can also experiment a lot with them when it comes to ingredients (including vegetables and herbs). Although it must be said that the ratio between those different ingredients (and especially the balance between moist and dry) is extremely important. At least; if you do not want to bite your teeth and/or your cracker looks like a piece of soft wallpaper 😉
Too risky to start it, you say? Do not fear. With the recipe below you can try your first ‘homemade cracker’ and later experiment with it. You can keep these crackers in your pantry for about a week. In a closed box though.
A lot of cracker fun!
Tip: can you not wholly manage with the rolling pin? Just use your hands. After all, it does not matter whether one cracker is thicker or thinner than the other. Some call it ‘not being able to cook’ … we call it ‘artisanal’ haha.
