Are you hanging up your stocking….

December is here - and it’s time to make some festive plans. We can help with that! Our Crispbreads and crackers are just perfect for afternoon or evening and guaranteed to keep all the family members happy.

Take our crackers for example. The range of three: Fava Bean & Poppy SeedGreen Pea & Chia Seed and Red Lentil & Poppy Seed are made with flours milled from pulses that provide a source of plant protein which is typically more than double the protein found in wholemeal wheat flour.

Fava bean (variety of broad bean) and green pea flours are sourced from Hodmedod’s and are milled from crops grown on British Farms.

They are delicious on their own and even more delicious with slivers of salmon, cheese or olives.

Mmmm - we wish it were Christmas Day already.

Turmeric triumph

Monday, August 9th, 2021

Why did we choose turmeric as an ingredient in our Chickpea, Turmeric & Nigella Seed crackers?

Well - it gives our crackers a beautiful colour for starters but, of course, there is more to it than that…

Turmeric comes from the turmeric plant and is a common spice in many Asian dishes. You will recognise turmeric as a main spice in curry for example.

Turmeric has a warm, bitter taste and, as well as curry, is often used to flavor mustards, butters and even cheeses.

The root of turmeric is also used widely to make medicine as it contains a chemical called curcumin. It’s considered helpful for controlling inflammation. It’s a folk remedy and a popular one at that.

We chose it because its taste complements the flavour of chickpea and it travels well with butter cheese and other toppings. Let us know what you think.
