Sourdough Rye Crackers

Those of us who bake bread at home are constantly looking for ways to utilize the excess bread starter. I personally believe that there should be no “discarding” of the starter. If you are in a good baking rhythm and the starter is mature and vigorous, there is no need to feed your starter daily, only the night before mixing the dough. In this way, there will be no discards at all, you just use what you need for the bread, and keep the rest in a fridge for next time.  On occasion, however, you may find yourself having too much of the bread starter, and this is when you make something special with it.

I found this recipe on another blog and I liked it well enough to try it out. My bread starter was whole wheat, and the flour was rye.  The crackers are very easy to make.  Since I followed the recipe exactly, there is no need to re-type it. Just follow the link and start baking.

For my batch, I sprinkled one half of the crackers with salt and curry spices, and the other with salt and chipotle.

I am a cooking and writing addict born and raised in a cosmopolitan city on the Black Sea coast. Currently my interests include, but not limited to gardening, traditional nutrition, raw milk, fermentation techniques, books by Sitchin, Weston A. Price ideas, artisan bread making, anything handcraft, and many other, quite random, things. I believe in making things from scratch, in unpretentious dishes, visually un-altered food esthetics. I believe in reporting on daily cooking endeavors, not just on special occasion dishes. I believe everyone should learn how to cook at home because it's a great way to connect with your loved ones without saying too much, with your heritage without becoming an archivist, and with the world without learning languages...
