One of my friends has given us the BEST Christmas present. ‘A Gift of Cheese’ – that is a 3-month subscription for the most delicious cheese selection, delivered to our door. If you’re in the UK, have a look at The Fine Cheese Company. We had one box so far but wow, we’re impressed!

The subscription comes with one pack of crackers, which for us lasts one sitting. And the cheese is enough for the two of us to have three cheese boards, so we were thinking about how we can make these experiences even more special. We added Seb’s sister’s green tomato chutney to the board, we added grapes and we needed something else. Like a very special, gourmet type of cracker… So we turned to our sourdough starter (that we had plenty of), and the new Sourdough Discard Crackers were born. With lots of seeds and dried fruit…

How to Make Sourdough Discard Crackers with Dried Fruit & Seeds?

Preheat the oven to 160°C Fan. Line a 2lbs loaf tin with baking parchment, lightly brush with oil and dust with flour.

In a large bowl, mix together both types of flour, ground almonds, bicarb of soda, mixed seeds, oats, dried fruit, mixed dried herbs, cinnamon, sugar, and salt and toss it all together to combine.

In a separate small bowl combine the milk and sourdough discard.

Pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients and fold until combined. Then pour it into the prepared loaf tin and bake for 45-50 minutes.

Remove from the oven, and let it cool down in the tin for 10 minutes. Then remove the loaf from the tin, unpeel the baking parchment and leave the loaf on a cooling rack to come to room temperature.

You may now choose to leave it for 48+ hours to firm up (even become a little stale), or wrap the loaf in foil and pop it in the freezer for 40-60 minutes. This will make it easier to cut into thin slices.

Preheat the oven to 100°C Fan.

Take the loaf out of the freezer and slice it into 2-3mm slices. I got about 45 slices.

Arrange the slices on a large baking sheet (or two) in a single layer and bake for 60-75 minutes until the crackers are dry and crispy. They will crisp up even more as they cool down.

Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
