I will never deny that I love a crisp, salty and flavorful cracker. But I’ve also gotten rid of most of the processed foods in our cupboards.
There have been many days right before lunch and dinner, when I’ve opened the cupboards and fridge and declared (probably with a lot of drama 😉 ), “There’s NOTHING to eat!”
And I continually am amazed that lunch and dinner come around every. single. day. They do, and I am never prepared. I’m working on that. 😉
Really, there is food to eat. But the meat is in the freezer, the rice is in the cupboard, the bone broth is still boiling, the broccoli or beans are in the garden or canned and stored downstairs.
Dinner is just here and there, disassembled, waiting for a mastermind to put it all together into a complete meal.
So, we don’t buy crackers from the store anymore. And crackers are essential, right?
Well, have I got a treat for you 🙂
This sourdough KAMUT wheat cracker recipe is so yummy!
When my husband makes sourdough pancakes, he always makes extra so that I can make some crackers. And usually I have a HUGE bowl of sourdough to use. By the time I get to the sourdough, I usually have 4 cups of sourdough to use. So my batches of crackers are four times bigger than the recipe calls for.
One catch to this recipe is that it is time consuming. To get a thin and crisp cracker, you will need to roll it out very, very, very thin. Which means there is a lot of sourdough to make lots of crackers.
The other catch is that because they are so good, they don’t last long.
It reminds me of Thanksgiving dinner. You spend so much time and effort baking and cooking, and eating the meal only takes 10 minutes. And the cleanup takes hours.
But I think it’s still worth it! 😉

Also, why Kamut wheat? Well…I’ll tell you what, we are so happy to have switched to using only Kamut wheat, and here’s why: Why I Only Use Kamut Wheat as a Homesteader
Also, feel free to take a look at what the cracker making process looks like. The real test to a good cracker is if it crackles when you bite in to it. Find out below if these make that wonderful crunch!
And a big thank you to Bread Experience where I found this recipe 🙂
