Hi there Fairygirl, I'm happy to give you my review on these crackers. They are one of the first things I made when I received my dehydrator a couple of weeks ago. At the time I was wondering if I should tackle crackers right away, because from what I had read they can be a little tricky, but I dove in anyway . They turned out great and I made them again this week. I didn't have the hemp seeds, so I used sesame seeds instead. The second time I made them, I didn't have quite enough zucchini from our very own garden , so to make up for that, I used a little bit of red pepper and onion and put that in the food processor with the zucchini. My husband also LOVES these crackers. Having the crackers around really help him stay satisfied until noon, after a green smoothie breakfast. The original recipe is in Raw Food Real World under the name Walnut Hemp Crackers. There is also a variation in the book that looks good, Sun-Dred Tomato and Herb Crackers. A couple of ways I have enjoyed the crackers are with nut butter and also guacamole spread on the crackers. Both are very satisfying and filling.

Hope this helps, and have a fantastic day!

Blessings and peace,

Marcia

Hello there,
I remember enjoying these as well. Wow, thanks Marcia, I didn't realize they were from RFRW at all!

Oh, and have you checked out the zucchini crackers I posted? They don't look like much but they're fantastic! You just gotta give these a try too!

Carmella, I'll try the zucchini crackers you posted too. We have lots of zucchini in our garden . This will be a great use for them!

Peace and Blessings,

I saw a post on these crackers at RFT and copied the recipe; meant to make them and forgot all about them. So I'm so glad you reminded me Carmella. I just love ritz crackers, they were my favorite. I love the texture of them--something I do miss with raw food. I did try the zuchinni crackers, mine finished yesterday and they do taste really good but I've only tasted a little piece of them. I am saving them for guacamole but I have to wait for my avacados to finish ripening for that.

I finally got around to making these!

They are in the D right now. I forgot zucchini at the farmer's market today, and when I went to the local HFS for organic produce, they only had summer squash. So...I bought it and used it. I hope it turns out ok...

About how long will these be in the D? 8 hours, 16, 24?

Hey mama,

I'm sure they will be fine! Sorry, don't remember how long they take to dehydrate... it's been too long!

Arrow It is a toss up!

I left the crackers in the D overnight, and they turned out pretty good. Even with the summer squash subbing for the zucchini, they were tasty!

They baby likes them, but the 2 year old isn't in love with them yet! Nor is the husband, for that matter! His exact word were, "These are ok, but they are not Ritz Crackers!" Oh well, I tried!

Now I just have to find recipes to enjoy the cracker with, then maybe I will have a good "sell" to the family!

I know, it's tricky to be using old SAD terms as it does set up expectations. Bet he would have liked them better if you'd offered him some new, nondescript crackers!

Just pulled these crackers from my dehydrator, and they are delicious! They have, by far, the best texture of any crackers I've made, and are indeed quite ritzy. The walnut flavor is very distinct. Next time I might try replacing half of the walnuts with sunflower seeds.
