View Full Version : Crackers

Can anyone suggest a raw cracker that can be bought in the store or online? I think that this will be one item I'd like to buy rather than make.
I bought a dehydrator today. I haven't used it and have already decided to return it and get a better quality one. The one I got didn't even have a temperature setting on it! What the?!?!
No dehydrating until tomorrow.

Do you think these are Raw? Or do you think they are baked?

I would say those are not raw, looking at the ingredients. So far, the only raw crackers I could find online or in the health food stores were flax seed crackers & so expensive. Seriously, I thought the same as you that I'd rather buy them than make them. BUT, they're so cheap and easy to make (when you get your dehydrator) and flax seeds are so inexpensive. But in the meantime, here's a few links we found when my hubby insisted he had to have a cracker (that craving passed and we never bought them online, but we found the same kinds locally & tried a couple):
Maybe those will help? I've only tried the ones shown in the first link.

Nah they're not raw, look at the ingredients. It would say if they were raw.

These are raw, but I haven't tried them.

I love Lydia's crackers. Her facility is right where I live but her products are in Whole Foods in the Raw section. You can also buy online at lydiasorganics.com. I especially like her Sunflower Bread although it's really more like a cracker. The Nori and Italian are good too.

I love Lydia's too. I have some of her flax crackers in my kitchen now. I use her breakfast crackers for pecan butter and banana sandwiches. The Mineral crackers taste a little like the little goldfish crackers...that is what my daughter says. I also enjoy mauk family farms' crisps. My son loves the Jalapeno and my daughter loves the meaquite, while I enjoy them all. www.maukfamilyfarms.com
I had a terrible time making crackers at first, but after trying some of the crackers above my eyes opened. I was able to taste what was "right". Now, I make all sorts of crackers. Have fun. Smile when your are frustrated, because it will happen. Remember at that crucial moment, when you have worked hard, waited patiently for the 24 hour dry time, $30 worth of ingredients...and it tastes awfuland your whole family gags...This is that little moment...baseball bats,explosives, steam roller:eek: THE Dehydrator is your FRIEND:p ...As usual, I learned more from my goofs than from no goofs at all.

Yaya's rawraw are great!!! The woman - Yaya - who makes them actually started the only operating food co-op in Houston, TX ... Her selections are great! I like the tomato basil personally as well as the spinach curry - the olive are also delicious.
