Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 cups plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup light cooking oil
  • 6 cup flour, with more for rolling dough(either all rye or 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 rye)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • sesame seeds

Cooking instructions:
Mix all ingredients, knead tills smooth, refrigerate an hour or more.
Roll 1 lb. dough to square 16 " dia., trim edges to make smooth square, cut with pizza cutter or knife to make 16 crackers.
Bake on cookie sheet at 375 degrees F. for ~14 min., rotating trays(if using two or more) midway.
Cool and wrap groups of 8 or 10 crackers first in foil, then plastic bag.
Bake till just browning or they will be brittle. If done well they will keep a long time and not break apart.

This is a recipe we've used for dozens of trips which came from The Natural Foods Cookbook by Beatric Trum Hunter.
