Hello all you crazy people. Have the holidays been treating you well??? I sure hope so because I’ve been having a love affair. Yes, you heard me. It’s true. My dehydrator and I go at it every night in the kitchen. We’ve been making everything we can get our hands on- apples, watermelon, mangoes, pineapple, jackfruit. My cat is next to go. Haha Just kidding. I know you guys would send PETA after me.
Even on Christmas day, I had my dehydrator in the basement. He was making carrot crackers for me. They were the best crackers I’ve ever had in my life. I say that about most of the foods I eat, but would I ever lie to you??? The basement smelled soo damn good, but my stepdad said it smelled like pee. His sense of smell is obviously going with age. Tisk tisk. Hehe.
I found this recipe on GoneRaw (aka my savior) and it’s just too good for words. I’ve been eating these crackers with hummus, sun-dried tomatoes, and olives. You must try them if you have a dehydrator near you!!!! If you don’t have one, go steal one from Bed, Bath, and Beyond… or even SEARS!!! Haha I had a customer tonight who was buying a dehydrator and I didn’t even know we sold them. I guess Sears isn’t as bad as I thought… Well, I wouldn’t go that far, but it’s on my good side for now.
Here's the Recipe:
6 cloves garlic
4 tablespoon ground flax seed meal
1 cup almonds
salt and pepper to taste (I used about ½ tsp salt and a few pinches of pepper)
2 medium organic carrots
Directions: Ground almonds to make flour. Put in food processor with carrots, garlic, flax seed meal, salt and pepper. Mix well.
Make flat crackers and place on dehydrator sheets. dehydrate at 105 F for 10-12 hr. flip the crackers after 6 hr and continue dehydrating. I made about 12 medium-sized crackers.
