We eat seedy crackers quite a bit, mostly because they are delicious and involve way less guilt than a salty snack. But whether you buy the posh Gail’s brand (£1.69 for 100 grams) or the standard Ryvita thins (£2 for 125g), they work out at £16 to £17 a kilo, not far from a rib of beef. When you do that sort of math, it gives you pause.
But tucked in the back of this month’s book is this recipe for Homemade Seedy Crackers. At last! We can make them ourselves and save our pennies for something else good. Like wine. The recipe is a mixture of spelt and plain flour, baking powder, salt, water, olive oil and seeds. They are a doddle to mix and bake, and probably cost about £2 a kilo. They disappeared quickly. We’re likely to be making these regularly.
Homemade Seedy Crackers FTW.
