Recipe: Horseradish and Dill Crackers

by Master Live Food Chef Barbara Kessler of Rawfully Tempting

As part of my recent exploration into “my roots,” I prepared fresh Horseradish. It was deeply earthy and delicious. From that recipe, I made a Horseradish Hummus/Dip, which was lighter in texture, but also fabulous. I needed some crunchy crackers… So what else? Horseradish ‘n Dill Crackers, of course! The horseradish flavor turned out rather mild while the dill seems to permeate the crackers. I love dill, so it works for me, and I can spread either horseradish or the hummus on them. If you’re not a fan of dill, replace it with another herb. Walnut crackers are great! Walnuts give a richness, extra crunch, and a splendid nutty tone. This recipe may also be prepared as a bread.

Horseradish ‘n Dill Crackers/Bread

1 1/2 cups walnuts (soaked overnight)
1/2 cup almond pulp/flour
1 1/2 cups veggie pulp(from juicing), or zucchini, chopped
2 1/2 cups water (add as needed)
1/4 cup ground flax seed
3 Tablespoons hemp seed
2 Tablespoons grated horseradish, (optional)
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoons dill, dried (save 1/2 tsp for garnish) or 1 1/2 Tablespoons fresh dill
2 Tablespoon sesame seeds (may also use some for garnish)
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Tablespoon honey (or your favorite sweetener)
1 Tablespoon Annie’s horseradish mustard (optional – not raw)
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon sea salt

1. In food processor, process walnuts, almond pulp and veggie pulp.
2. Add water as needed to mix. (more water used, longer dehydration time)
3. Add remaining ingredients and continue to process until well mixed.
4. Taste and adjust seasoning to your liking
5. Spread 1 cup of batter onto no-stick dehydrator sheet. Rotating tray in circle as you spread onto tray. (An Offset Spatula helps a lot)
6. Repeat this for each tray. Garnish with dill and/or sesame seeds, or poppy seeds, onion flakes, etc.
7. Dehydrate at 115 degreed F for about 3 hours.
8. To flip over, place a mesh tray on top. Holding two trays together, quickly flip over. Remove tray and peel of non-stick sheet.
9. Score batter using dull-edged knife and continue to dehydrate 12-18 hours, or until crisp.

For Bread: Spread batter onto 2 trays, instead of 3, making layer thicker than crackers. Follow directions above, although you may have to wait another hour to flip. Score into squares. I like 2×2.

Dehydrate until bread is firm, but not crunchy. Freeze in airtight container and use as needed.

Absolut Honey – Alive 11oz squares

“Deliciousness itself,” as Mark Twain said about cherimoya. For culinary adventurers who demand the ultimate in aliveness. An elegant natural confection. We are delighted to say that Absolut Honey is back. This is honeycomb filled with honey just as the bees made it. A single cell of honeycomb is filled with the concentrated nectar of innumerable flowers. What could be more alive?

The bees are cared for with loving devotion by Walt Broughton and his sons Abram, Luke and Jeb. Together they have in excess of ten decades of being with the bees.

Honeycomb is completely edible. Many aver that honey tastes especially alive when eaten straight from the comb. It is chewy, pleasantly sweet,fresh and vital. The wax cells of honeycomb are both edible and beneficial because they contain natural vitamin A as well as roughage. For an ecstatic taste spread on a slice of apple that has first been spread with a layer of tahini or almond butter. With cheeses, fruit, and edible flowers it is a gorgeous and delicious spread.

“Preppers” and “survivalists” please note:- the shelf life of honey is 4000 years.
