Red Fife Heritage Grain Crackers

MADE BY HAYDEN FLOUR MILLS IN QUEEN CREEK, ARIZONA

MOUTH SAYS...

Too often, crackers live in the shadow of the cheese that sits upon them. The father-daughter team behind Hayden Flour Mills in Tempe, Arizona believes that a cracker can share the spotlight with its topping when made with flavorful flours milled fresh from heritage grains.

Each flour lends so much of its own wholesome character to these thin yet sturdy crackers, that you may find yourself eating several unadorned ones while trying to decide on a topper. Judiciously salted and packaged with care to avoid breakage, these crackers command center stage.

We know that there’s great power behind the suggestion that this 19th-century heirloom wheat varietal has herbaceous and caramel-like notes, but we’re sticking to it. These crackers are just that good. Aged Cheddar, with its own grassy, caramelly flavors, is a match made in cheese-and-cracker heaven. 

TIP OF THE TONGUE

Appetizers become the main event when these crackers meet this Vermont-made Cheddar and this French onion confit.
