Put the apples and oranges aside, it's cranberry season! These tart little berries are a great way to spice up your day, and what better way to enjoy them than in a crunchy cracker?

Our blend of spelled, rye and barley flours give these biscuits a lovely nutty flavour, while the cranberries add a touch of sweetness. Sunflower seeds, flax seeds and sesame seeds give them a crunchy texture, and sea salt gives the perfect finish. So why not skip the store-bought snacks and try something homemade for once? With our Hjälmareknecke Cranberries, you'll be glad you did!

Before you click through to checkout, I want to share an interesting story about one of the most Swedish things we have! Namely the crisp bread.

The word "knäck" in the word knäckebröd, refers in part to a tool with spikes that stick out that create the notched or pecked shape in the bread during manufacture. In eastern Värmland, the bread was "cracked" by kneading the dough with a pot cracker on one side so that the bread is easy to crack.

It is believed that we in Sweden started baking hard leavened bread from rye already in the 6th century, and the reason for the big hole in the middle was to protect against rats by hanging the bread on cod poles. Cracked bread contains little water, less than 10 percent, which means that the bread has a high durability, which was good in the past when preservation possibilities were few. Since the crackers can also be stored for a long time, you can have them over the winter.

Historically, rye was grown in central Sweden in the 11th century and bread was baked from it. The term "shortbread" has been around since the beginning of the 17th century, and it was baked twice a year. It is usually talked about that in Central Sweden, there is a crispbread belt in the latitude of the valleys out to central Norway and Finland - where hard bread is eaten all year round.

Further north in Sweden, it is the thin bread that is popular, and in the south it is the kavringen. So, it's no wonder that this lovely bread is eaten mostly in Sweden. But even in Germany and France it is to some extent in households. Fun fact is that a Swedish household eats an average of four kg of crisp bread per person! So be sure to stock up your pantry!
