t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


Graham Cracker Recipe

For some reason this post doesn't seem to work right. Here is the recipe for homemade graham crackers.

Graham Crackers

6 c whole grain flour

1 T baking powder

1/2 c evaporated milk

½ t salt

1 c olive oil

1 ½ c warm honey

2 t vinegar or lemon juice

2 t vanilla

1 powdered egg (you can substitute a regular egg)

Mix dry ingredients. Add remaining. Mix until well moistened. Roll out 1/8” thick on greased and floured baking sheet (without sides is best, or just turn one with sides upside down). Score into desired size. Sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired. Prick with fork. Bake at 350 for 8-10 min, or until golden. Longer for crisp crackers. Makes 3 large trays.

Sometimes I even take them off the sheet after they are done cooking, flip them over and put them back on the tray upside down and cook some more. That way they are really crispy.
