Head straight on to the Recipe For ♥ Sourdough Discard Crackers ♥
I found myself very close to having a husband who was going to leave me! Dave and I went away for the weekend and I suggested we take the Lotus. As the boot space is at a premium, my vanity bag went behind the seats. We were meeting friends in Swellendam and while they were out for lunch, I decided to unpack. I asked Dave for the car keys and went to go and open the car door. I knew that the remote was not working for the locks, but did not realize that the alarm was not set. So I clicked the button and watched in horror as the lock dropped. And the key does not work the central locking. This I did not know, nor was I aware that the central locking unit was broken.

Dave told me that the only thing was to cut the roof, or leave the car there and get a lift home somehow. I suggested we make an effort to try and open the car and as the locks have a little knob on them, surely we could lift one up. Richard came to assist and had the same idea. He came back with a length of ski rope, tied a slip knot into it and slid it through the gap between the window and the car. Dave had fashioned a piece of steel with a hook. And together they managed to get the rope over the knob and lifted the lock. Needless to say I was most relieved, and not only because the car was open. Once all was said and done, we could at least joke about not letting me near the remote.

nice job breaking into your car!
Indeed, not that I had anything to do with that part.
These look delicious and I will certainly try your recipe. I have my own way of dealing with sourdough discard. I simply add a handful of seeds to the discharge eg linseed, sesame, pumpkin, sunflower and juice of half a lemon, ground black pepper. I heat up my sandwich maker and put spoonfuls of the mixture on the heated plate, close the lid. Cook for a minute or so, flip them over and cook until light tan colour. I adjust the mixture so that it is quite runny as I like my crackers to be very thin. They stay crisp for months in an air tight container.
Thank you for all your delicious recipes. I am always delighted to see your emails in my inbox and enjoy reading about your activities
Thank you for making my heart smile today! I like your way of using the discard. I will borrow the kids sandwich press to give it a try 🙂
I love savoury and herbaceous (usually with cheese) cookies/biscuits (I’m still struggling with their name as they actually neither biscuits nor cookies haha). But I always use shortbread-like dough. Sourdough though? That’s interesting and delicious – must deliver even more of the earthy flavour!

They have a lovely flavour and like you, I also like savoury biscuits made with a dough similar to shortbread.
