Rosemary Salted Water Crackers
April 24, 2013
For the past year and a half I have been increasingly making more food from scratch. I just added these home made water crackers to things that I can now make from scratch. They are flavored with the clean, fresh herbaceous taste of newly picked Rosemary leaves. Containing just a few ingredients, they are a cheap way to bake up a supply for snacks and to serve with a platter. The recipe is based on this one here.
I have a prolific Rosemary bush in my herb patch that was in need of a trim this week. I collected some sprigs to make these biscuits, and I intend to also make some Rosemary Salt for cooking also.
Later this week I will be publishing a post with tips on growing Rosemary. It will form part of the series I have been writing on Growing Herbs. With ANZAC Day approaching tomorrow I think it is an apt herb to be posting this week. Rosemary is considered to be a symbol of remembrance. *The Romans and Greeks believed that Rosemary was symbol of love and death. It was used at both weddings and funerals based on it’s association with faithfulness and constancy. At weddings Rosemary was added to the bride’s bouquet, and at funerals, and for Anzac Day ceremonies, a sprig may be worn pinned to clothing. (*D Ryman, Aromatherapy, Platkus, 1991)
As noted on the recipe – the success of this recipe depends on how thinly you roll the dough prior to cutting it. It should be rolled as thinly as possible.
I will be experimenting with many new flavors now I have this one as a base to work from.
Have you made your own crackers? Is it something that you would give a go?
