Bake your own Flatbread/Shardbread
Measurements are given in cups. One cup=1 ½ dl or about 90 g flour.
| 7 Cups of gruttet flour or thick wheat flour.|
| 3 cups of liquid. Use whey or butter milk|
| 1 Egg|
| A dash of salt (if desired)|
- Flour, liquid, egg and salt must be kneaded long and thoroughly. If needed
add more flour or liquid so the dough is just right.
- The dough should be shaped into small balls and then pressed flat and
- The bread is baked over a glowing fire on shards of pottery or pans, about
2-3 minutes on each side. The bread should be light brown and sound hollow
when you knock on it lightly with a fingernail. For the pottery you can use
the shards from an average red burned herbal pot...
|Sweeter bread/cakes can be obtained by sweetening the dough with honey.|
|Toasted stinging nettles give a good spicy taste.|
|Chopped nuts and cooked acorns in the dough are also good.|
