Figs, dates, pomegranates and grapes were the only fruits that could be grown in the hot climate. From: Ancient Egyptian Food and Drink. This recipe was from 1600BC and was found on an ostraca. *NOTE* There are no times given but I'm thinking it would go pretty quickly with the food processor.
In Japan, children would eat soy cookies or crackers, not sweet but very salty with the taste of soy sauce. My son hated the taste of a sweet cookie for a while, only wanted his soy cookies.This is my revised recipe.
This taste is not for everyone but you might like it.
A thin low-fat crisp cracker-like bread that you break into pieces to eat. Flax seed is available in the health food section of the supermarket. Found this on landolakes web site and am posting this as a favor to my friend, Mary. Here's to you! Haven't made this as yet.
Almonds are very healthy nuts to eat and when I saw this recipe in our local TV guide I thought Aha yet another dimension to the almond. Remeber that Wasabi is VERY Hot. Wasabi powder can be found in most spice areas of your local super market
These are just like the ones you get at the fair! Most recipes leave out the very important step of boiling before baking. You must do this to achieve the right results. *Prep time includes rising time.
I love the peppy-salty seasoning on this wonderful snack or party nibble, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that fried cashews are not greasy at all. I don't know if this is authentic to the recipe, but I also like to let the finished nuts cool just a bit then toss them in a bag with some garlic salt before serving.
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 take only minutes to prepare on your food processor, better make a ton of these buttery thin crackers, I assure you they won't even make it to the freezer lol! The dough can be frozen the wrapped tightly in plastic wrap then in foil and frozen for up to 3 months. The garlic powder is optional, if you are a garlic-lover then add it in!
Every little Jewish kid who grew up in the States always had a Candy Man in shul. He was the old guy who always had hard candies in his pocket for the kids. And those candies usually were the hard little sesame brittle bars that got wedged in between your teeth and under your fillings. Make some of these to bring back memories.
