This recipe is equal to an 8.5 ounce box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix. When another recipe calls for a box of JIffy Corn Muffin Mix, use the mixed dry ingredients from this recipe as a substitute. This is a very easy copycat recipe because it uses Bisquick. Store any unused dry mix in an airtight container.
This is a delicious all-purpose dry seasoning that is good in spaghetti sauce, chicken and dumplings, in pasta salads, or sprinkled on fresh, ripe sliced tomatoes. It also makes a good Italian Salad Dressing for salads or marinade. Omit salt if you like.
I usually ask my kids to peel the garlic and ginger while they are watching tv :) That's the hardest part! I store it in the fridge. Don't be alarmed if it starts to turn greenish ...it usually discolours within an hour or so. It's just fine :)
I devised this little concoction several years ago because we love curries and things with coconut milk in them, but OH, the sat-fat in that lovely canned stuff. A no-no for us unless it's a very special occasion. It's worked for me in a lot of curries and even rice dishes, and we can enjoy these foods without the worry. This recipe is a starting point as a substitute for 1 cup canned coconut milk for adding to recipes. (1- 13.5 oz can is just shy of 2 cups, I make the difference up with fat free half&half.) You can adjust the cornstarch and sugar to your taste for thickness and sweetness. Double or change for however much liquid you need in your recipe.
Makes an excellent accompaniment to hummus or other spread. I just discovered that I love dipping them into garlic/onion flavored cream cheese. I also love them with soups. Sesame oil gives these crackers a strong, nutty taste. If you want a milder cracker, substitute shortening for some of the oil. Yield 6 dozen crackers. (From King Arthur Flour's Baking Companion)
These home made crackers are far superior to any you can purchase and go wonderfully with all those great winter soups. Also work well as holders of appetizers and use with dips or even alone. We love 'em! Adapted from Cooking light. 30 minute chill (freeze) time not included in cook or prep time.
