This is a kind of mercy blog. I have had lots of people coming to buy various RAW! products from me, and they like the taste and quality but they find them expensive – which is fair enough, in a world of 2:4:1 offers in the supermarkets and their ability to crush producers down to minuscule margins then all RAW! products will feel more expensive.
In defence of RAW! foods it is really helpful to remember that because the foods are nutritionally dense there is not the need to eat to excess in the way that is normal with more conventional foods (better not even start on some of those terrible diet plans, where you pay to attend, are told you are not eating enough, routinely overeat, increase your tolerance of those quantities and when you are no longer on the diet you overeat on the calorific foods you were used to and suddenly you are 10% heavier than ever you started!) Also RAW! foods are very satisfying and you will have a spring in your step 🙂
Well, this is a recipe for a basic Linseed cracker, follow the recipe and you will have crisp, tasty crackers that will not get stuck in your throat or cause you a belly ache.
It is not exactly the recipe I use (as that would be telling) but you can add in various herbs and spices as you like – you will then have your own unique cracker. I have scaled back the recipe size to make 1 standard tray to fit either a Sedona or Excalibur dehydrator. This recipe will not work in an oven (really sorry – but it just won’t) or if you have your own sun-drier then spread it out to 1-2 linseeds thick.
A word about the dehydrator. I have a Sedona 9 tray. In the manual it says that it will function for 36 hours continuous use. I have had mine running continuously for 2 weeks and never had a single problem with it. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
I do not have any photos of the process -as I say this is being posted because there is a need for a good recipe.
I recommend you eat these with a fresh dip but as an emergency pack in your bag for those moments when all there is on offer is deep fried or covered in cheap chocolate – then these are worth their weight in gold.
