How To Store Sourdough Crackers
It is best to store crackers in an airtight container with a paper towel on the bottom to absorb excess moisture. I prefer to use a glass container versus a plastic container.
How To Make Sourdough Crackers Pourable
It is a simple process, in fact, I actually like to make a pourable batter rather than rolling out the dough, especially on those busy nights. It makes these easy homemade crackers no fuss to get on the table quickly.
To make the batter crackers, simply pour a thin layer of the batter into a greased baking sheet that has sides, also known as a jelly roll pan. If you prefer, you can also you a piece of parchment paper on the pan, instead of greasing it. This is the method that I will use today.
You can pick the pan up to move the batter around a bit, but I like to just use my whisk to quickly spread it around. The layer of batter will look very thin and that is exactly what you want.
How To Get Crispy Crackers
