I make a lot of cheese and I used to buy a lot of crackers. They were pretty ordinary so about a year ago I started trialing cracker recipes and I’ve settled on 3 excellent ones that I want to share in the run-up to Christmas.
They’re not just for cheese, homemade crackers are handy to have in a jar for all those “bring a plate” and “pop around for a drink” occasions that descend on you over the holiday season. Even if you just partner them with a pot of hummus from the 4Square they look posh.
They also make a great gift. All your busy foodie friends will love you for giving them a big jar of homemade crackers. Print out the recipes below, pop them around a jar of crackers and gift wrap it like a Christmas cracker for a cute and thoughtful pressie.
My three top crackers are a crisp flat bread topped with spices and seeds, a robust nutty oat cake and a seriously moreish seed packed Swedish cracker called Knackenbrot. They cover most of your cracker bases, dipping, topping and snacking. Click here to download the recipes. Merry Christmas.
