  • Mix the whole seed and grain together and then grind them into a flour with a grain mill or a coffee mill. A pestle and mortar works the best but it is hard work!
  • Mix in the melted lard.
  • Add boiling water until the mixture forms a soft dough.
  • Spread over a greased tray and press down very firmly to a thickness of 1/8 inch / 3 mm. Score into squares.
  • Bake in a preheated oven, gas mark 6, 400F, 200C, for 8-12 minutes until golden brown.
  • Turn out onto a wire tray to cool and dry.
  • Keep crispbreads in an airtight container.
Variations
