Swedish hard-bread "Knäckebröd"

This summer I had alot of time for things and projects you don't normally find. One of them was baking hard-bread, one of my snack and weekend-breakfast favorites. After trying several recipes this one is by far the best, from Annas Food, a very classical swedish cookbook that I just love. It was very easy to make and they are superyummy and good for you. 100% homemade so you always know exactlly what you give to your body.

For about 20, follow the recipie below:

50 grams of yeast

5 dl of water (room temeperature)

1/2 tablespoon of salt

1/2 kg (one liter) of rye flower (organic)

2 dl of all purpose flour

Mix yeast and water. Add the rest of the ingredients. Mix togeather (preferably in a Kitchen Aid or similar). Leave overnight. The next day, split into 20 pieces and use a rolling pin to form thin round breads. They are only supposed to be 1-2 mm thick! Use a fork to "pickle" them. If you want, you can sprinkle them with any type of seed that you want.

Bake off 10-15 minutes in 250 c degrees. Voila! Enjoy!
