Gluten-Free Sourdough Discard Crackers

Gluten-Free Sourdough Discard Crackers (Dairy-Free, Nightshade-Free, Nut-Free, and Soy-Free)

I am still working through some of My 19 For COVID-19. My best accomplishment has been the completion of a gluten-free sourdough starter.  I am trying to muddle my way through keeping it alive and feeding it.  It feels very wasteful discarding part of it even now that it spends most of it’s time in the fridge.

Yesterday was my day to feed my starter.  So I was determined to actually use the discard.  I came across a super easy recipe for discard crackers.  Crackers are so elusive in the gluten-free diet.  I have not found many that are edible let alone enjoyable.

I love these and have plans to spice them differently and add some mix-ins to liven them up.  But this basic recipe is very tasty
