Easy Homemade Whole Wheat Crackers
For the third time this week, I'm astounded at how easy it is to make something that I've always bought. These whole wheat beauties are surprisingly addictive and are ridiculously easy to make. Heaven only knows why I thought they'd take hours and create a huge mess in the kitchen. Not so, my dear readers :)
I used this recipe with the addition of 1 TBSP dehydrated onion granules. The Hard Red Wheat from Gold Forest Grains was freshly ground this morning (you could use store bought wheat flour, but I highly recommend using freshly milled entire grain flour). I topped the crackers with a liberal sprinkling of Himalayan pink salt before baking (we like the milder flavour of it over traditional sea salt). The flavour possibilities are endless, but I wanted to taste the grain and have a simple unadorned cracker to top any way we like.
Oh MY these are good - REALLY good, in fact. After years of procrastinating, I'm kicking myself for not trying them sooner! I've already made 2 double batches today and I doubt that they'll last the weekend :)
