Making crackers at home is one of the easiest and best things to know how to do in the kitchen. They are so quick to make and use really basic ingredients. Mine are a combination of rye and plain flour, but you can experiment with different flour combinations too. Sometimes I like to add a little more rye than here, but this ratio is a great starting place. You can make them fancy by putting some herbs in between the dough – it looks gorgeous but also tastes really good too. Sometimes I like to make a little seed mix to scatter on the top, along with the sea salt. Some sesame seeds – white and black, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds, add a really nice crunch.
I’ve paired these crackers with a really simple ‘dip’ made from goat’s cheese. It is really so addictive and completely delicious. Just don’t skimp on the olive oil, buy the best you can afford. Serve it all with some radishes and baby carrots and your crunchy, more-ish snack-plate complete. Best eaten outside in the spring sunshine!
