Behind The Scenes: Graham Crackers
They're not expensive at Aldi, so why bother making them myself?
Frugal cooking means looking beyond the price per unit. I only save about 60 cents off the cost of storebought, but I get a superior product for my efforts.
I can make graham crackers higher-fiber (using whole wheat alone) and lower sugar (using higher quality natural sweeteners). They taste fresher, too.
Tonight I'm testing recipes from Martha's Family Cookery Book (my best Christmas gift) and Cookin' With Home Storage. Both offer excellent ideas for scratch cooking even the most basic snacks.
