Rosemary and Sea Salt Crackers

rosemary and salt crackers recipe

So, this is my very first savory recipe on Sugar Thumb… contraversiiiiiall!

How did this MADNESS begin I hear you cry? Well, my mum bought me some delicious spelt crackers over from England which I was nibbling at my desk at work every once in a while. They were full of delicious flavours from fennel seeds and sea salt, pepper and other wondrously tasty yet wholesome things.

Then my colleague Holly was inspired to buy crackers too. She bought these AMAZING rosemary ones and I suddenly thought.. how hard can it be to make a cracker. Turns out, not that hard, or time consuming. And so began… the wonderful journey of cracker making.

Anyway, enough of the melodrama. Here is the recipe guys. The rosemary in these isn’t overpowering, so they are really good with strong cheeses like a stilton or mature cheddar. As I wrote those words my mouth began to water and a part of me began to cry and wish for a good cheese or two. In Germany, I must say a good cheddar or stilton is LACKING. And itΒ  bugs me everyday. Just HOW can anyone live without cheddar, and why would you choose to? Someone needs to start importing better cheddar into this town.
