In the past, we have kept them in storage for several months to a year. Well when I looked at the packaging, the best use date was Nov. 30, 2009. Since we had it some time prior to that date, I figure it is probably well over 3 years old.…Read More...
This is a recipe for Norwegian rye crisp or hardtack. These crackers can be dried and stored a very long time, but they’re better fresh! We have some that are over a year old.
- 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
- 1 cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees)
- 1 1/3 cups rye flour
- 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup rye meal (pumpernickel flour)
- Mix the yeast in the water in a small bowl. Set aside.
- Combine the rye flour with the all-purpose flour in a large bowl. Stir in the salt. Mix in the yeast mixture to make soft dough.
