  • Nut Crackers.....is this a typo?

    I'm about to make the "nut crackers" on page 192 of the Primal Cookbook. It calls for baking soda. Is this correct? Are we sure it isn't baking powder?

    I wasn't aware that baking soda wasn't primal.

        I dont have the cookbook so just guessing here..
        Is it something like Peanut brittle? in which case baking soda would be right.

            Is this the recipe?.. If so, Baking soda is pobably correct based on the amount called for

            2. DIY Primal Nut Crackers

            The Primal eating plan allows you to indulge in a plethora of great dips, and, while you can always slice up a few vegetables and use them for dipping, sometimes all you really want is a cracker. And now you can…

            Ingredients:
            2 cups fine almond meal
            1 tsp baking soda
            1 clove garlic, minced
            3 tbsp Italian seasoning
            1 cup finely grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
            2 tbsp olive oil
            1 tsp sea salt
            4 tbsp water

            In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and stir to form a moist, sticky dough. Add more water or oil if needed. Using wet hands, place the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Using your fingers, flatten the dough out into a uniform thin layer free of cracks. Bake in a preheated 350 degree over for 15 minutes or until dough becomes dry and golden in appearance. Remove and cool on a wire baking rack. Once the dough is cooled (and this is important, because it becomes very brittle right out of the oven) use a pizza cutter to create “crackers.” If not consuming immediately, be sure to store in an air-tight container.

                  Good to know.. I may have to try some myself.. Have a whole jar of freshly made pate that needs something to carry it into my mouth so sounds like these might do the trick

                    I've also made the pumpkin muffins from the cookbook. Fantastic!

                      I don't think they need the baking soda at all. I've made them several times and just made them without it. The result was just fine and less cakey. I also think the recipe is really salty as is. I usually half the salt. That said, I really like the recipe. It's quick to put together and very tasty.
