Sifting

I recently had someone share a terrific recipe for Wheat Thin crackers. It’s an awesome recipe and taste like what I remember Wheat Thins to taste like, since they are not available in Cameroon. I have to admit that I would still rather buy a box than spend hours making the crackers, but when you are craving snack foods, it’s amazing the time you’ll put into replicating those comforting foods.

Step 1: Find wheat, not an easy task, but I was fortunate to find someone selling wheat.

Step 2: Remove all debris and non-wheat chunks from the wheat bran. (Jonah helped with removing the debris)

Step 3: Take the wheat to the person down the road with a grinding machine, to have the wheat ground into flour.

Step 4: Allow the new wheat flour to cool; it gets hot being ground into flour.

Step 5: Sift the wheat flour for any debris missed and/or bugs.

Step 6: Now the wheat flour is ready to be used in any recipe of choice.

Many steps and much time later…voilà…we have wheat thins to enjoy for about 2 days.

    That is a lot of work for wheat thins. We’ll try to have ample supply on hand when you are in PA.

    This does not surprise me. You have always been a wonder in the kitchen! I don’t think there is anything you couldn’t do. Girl, you got determination and all those around you benefit from it.
