Sourdough Crackers

These are a delicious addition to your favorite soup or salad or on their own as a snack.


Ingredients

1 cup sourdough starter

1/3 cup melted butter, olive oil, ghee, or fat of choice

1 cup flour (wheat, buckwheat, rye, oat, spelt, kamut, or a mixture of several—I like to use a variety of flours for a varied nutrition and flavor profile)

1/4 tsp baking soda

sea salt (1/4 to 1 tsp, according to preference)

seasoning of choice (1 tsp to 1 Tbsp, according to preference)

  • rosemary and black pepper

  • "everything" seasoning

  • seed variety - sesame, poppy, sunflower, pumpkin, flax, etc

  • taco seasoning

  • onion and dill

  • try other seasonings too!


Instructions

Stage One

  • Combine starter, oil, and flour in a bowl and mix well.

  • Add additional flour as needed to form a stiff dough.

  • Cover and let rest at room temperature for at least 8 hours and up to 4 days.

Stage Two

  • Preheat oven to 350º F

  • Add sea salt, baking soda, and any desired seasonings.

  • Knead the dough thoroughly until all seasonings are well distributed.

  • Roll a portion of dough between layers of parchment paper with a rolling pin until you reach your desired thickness (about 1/8"). The size of the portion you roll out will depend on the size of your pan.

  • Transfer dough to a pan (cookie sheet, casserole dish, etc.) lined with parchment paper. I like to roll out the dough on the pan and then remove the top layer of parchment paper.

  • Using a pizza cutter, cut crackers into your desired size and shape.

  • Lightly mist the dough and sprinkle with additional salt, if desired.

  • Bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Thicker crackers will take longer to bake. Any crackers that are softer than desired can be put back in the oven to get more crispy at any point (even several days later!).


Notes:

  • This recipe is very forgiving.

  • I often add the seasonings during stage one for a more broad flavor. When I let the dough sit for a few days with the seasoning in it the flavor tends to be more intense.

  • Get creative! There are limitless options for seasoning combinations. Truthfully, I've never made a cracker I didn't like. I prefer some flavors over others but I've never had any go to waste!
