Spelt Crackers

Why Spelt?  Sometimes I like to diverge from the mundane ingredients in my pantry and splurge! This ancient whole grain flour, rich in calcium, magnesium, iron, and manganese, as well as flavor, was just the detour I was looking for.

Since spelt flour is not processed in the way so many of our bleached white wheat flour is, it is still rich in fiber. It makes for a very rustic loaf of bread and hearty crackers.

Spelt adds depth to a hearty breakfast muffin, one perhaps of walnuts, apples, molasses, and spices. But for today, I wanted a rustic artisan cracker that would complement my cheese tray, as much as an appetizing accompaniment to my quick nut butter and jam, on the go lunches I depend on.

Homemade Herb Crackers

Charcuterie board, after school snacks or cocktail hour treats all deserve to have a hearty cracker that isn’t pasty flour and water with no substance. 

Making homemade crackers is so easy, you couldn’t scoot over to the market to buy a box of crackers faster than you could whip up a huge batch at home.

Toss any of your favorite dried herbs into the recipe for flavors that speak to you or simply use the suggested herbs I often make my homemade crackers with.
