Two For The Price Of One
Crackers AND Great Tasting Juice
My daughter absolutely LOVES flax seed crackers, and honestly, I can’t see paying so much money for deliciously prepared 2-3 oz. of crackers, when I can make them.
For the longest time, I wanted to try making flax crackers with the pulp left over from juicing; but for the most part, when I juice, I use a myriad of veggies AND fruit and the combined pulp, I fear, would not have made a good flax cracker. So this time, I brought it upon myself to strictly pulp the ingredients I wanted to add into the cracker and they were – carrot, celery and red pepper. After I juiced those items, I removed the pulp and then proceeded to juice one granny smith apple to sweeten up the juice that came from the carrots, celery and red peppers. Let me tell you – – IT WAS DELICIOUS!
So, from one flax cracker recipe, I got two delicious tasting recipes! Below is the recipe for my Fresh Pulp Flax Seed Crackers!
Flax Seed Crackers with Fresh Pulp
2 stalks celery
½ red pepper
*(After I removed this pulp, I juiced 1 apple with it. It made a wonderful glass of healthy juice)!
¼ cup sun-dried tomato (soaked for 1 hour and then chopped into pieces)
½ cup Raw Flax seed (soaked for 1 hour in enough water to cover)
¼ cup Raw Chia seed (soaked for 1 hour in enough water to cover)
½ cup Raw Sunflower seeds
¼ cup Raw Sesame seeds
1 tbsp. Fennel seeds
1 tbsp. Caraway seeds
1 tsp. sea salt
½ tsp. rosemary
½ tsp. thyme
1 tsp. herbs de Provence
½ tsp. garlic powder
Mix together and spread out on your “fruit roll-up sheet” as Nesco calls it or Paraflexx™ sheet as Excalibur calls it and dehydrate at 104 degrees for 6-8 hours.
Gently loosen the semi-hard crackers and flip over to tray and dehydrate another 6-8 hours. Remove and break into nice size chips! Or – before the flip, you can score your crackers with a knife for symmetrical crackers! We personally just like to break ours!
I know that dehydrating crackers (or anything raw) takes organization, time and patience, but I truly believe it’s worth it if you have the equipment. Whether you buy your flax crackers or make your flax crackers, the main thing is is that you just
