Karl’s Lox Schmear

I’m trying to catch up on my postings. While I did not stop cooking while Jan was working on her book, I did not have time to write them up. We were going to a party and as my contributions I thought I would bring crackers and schmear. My thought was to make a schmear that would be reminiscent of a classic lox bagel—lox, cream cheese, onions and capers.

Karl’s French Onion Soup Crackers

I had some French onion soup left over from the other night. It had turned into an onion jam and—although the flavor was not bad—was a bit too “oniony” for most of Eilene’s friends. I was getting few takers for the leftovers. I decided that one way to buffer the flavors—and use up the leftovers— was to turn some of it into savory crackers. I will freeze the rest, in portions, to use as “soup starters.”

Karl’s Cream Crackers

Yesterday I made fig jam. Jan decided that we should make tonight’s dinner a cheese and fig jam tasting. I could run out and just buy some crusty bread, but fresh crackers see the better choice.

Karl’s Rosemary Parmesan Crackers

The kids are not coming over for dinner tonight, so Jan wants cheese and crackers for dinner (AKA deli dinner). She wanted some plain crackers, but I have been testing the limits of fresh crackers. Today’s savory cracker is rosemary Parmesan topped with salt and pepper.

Karl’s Za’atar Crackers with Harissa Humus

Earlier this week I made some raspberry crackers. This led Jan to thinking about: What other unexpected things you could you add to crackers?  Her answer was the spice blend za’atar. She asked me to make these crackers for Sunday’s dinner.

Karl’s Raspberry Cream Crackers

When I started making fresh crackers, Jan named them, “Karl Don’t Make These Crackers.” This was not because they were so bad, but because they were so good. These crackers were just too good to leave just laying around tempting you to eat them. I am constantly tinkering with the recipe and I have gone a long way from the original.

Karl’s Sesame Crackers II

I am making a soup for Sunday’s dinner and I decided that fresh crackers would go nicely with it. When I started making fresh crackers, Jan named them, “Karl Don’t Make These Crackers.” This was not because they were so bad, but because they were so good. These crackers were just too good to leave laying around tempting you to eat them.
