    I was just wondering if anyone has the recipe for the unleavened bread/crackers, or if this has been asked before, if someone could point me in the direction of the thread that gives the answer. Thanks :)

    Unleavened Bread Recipe for Christian Passover

    1 Cup whole wheat flour 2 Tsp. oil
    1/4 Tsp. salt 1/4 Cup water
    1 Tbsp. butter

    Sift flour and salt and mix butter into flour until it resembles peas. Mix oil and water and add to flour. Mix until it leaves the sides of the bowl. Put a small amount of flour on your breadboard and knead dough lightly. Add a small amount of flour and press flat with hand. Then roll out as thin as possible. Pick up, turn over and roll out again as thin as possible. Perforate with a fork and bake for eight minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Yerusalyim

    1 part water (cold)
    3 parts flour (approximatly)

    Knead quickly into firm, non sticky dough.
    Divide into 1" - 1 1/2" balls, the rounder the better.
    Roll out to 1/8" or less thickness. Poke holes.
    Bake on tiles, at hottest setting till done (2-3 minutes).
    No more than 18 minutes may elapse from the touch of the water to putting the
    matsah into the oven.

    My mom, her dad, and a close family friend were all anointed... so I've got *the* recipe.

    It's very simple:

    • Mix water and whole-wheat flower until you have a nice dough (you can sprinkle a little salt in the mix for flavor).
    • Use a roller to flatten it to about 1/16 inch thick... maybe a bit thicker.
    • Poke a bunch of holes in it using a fork or a tenderizing mallet.
    • Cook it in an oven at about 350 until it is crispy... you can also put it in the microwave
  • Yerusalyim

    technically, if you add salt, it's a leaven and the "bread" is no good for kosher purposes.

    I used to make it for the memorial and it was just water and flour, like Yeru and Elsewhere describe, and was told no salt or anything else (this was our cong's rule anyway).

    Just flour and water, no salt, oil, or eggs, or onions, etc.

    Good recipe, Yeru.

    "That same night [Nisan 14] they are to eat the meat roasted over the fire, along with bitter herbs, and bread made without yeast."(Exodus 12:1-12).
    doesn't mention salt Yeru...

  • Yerusalyim


    Actually, the word used in hebrew is the word for leaven...salt is considered a leavening agent believe it or not.

    LOL @ Nosferatu, that's exactly what I did, Maneshevitz (sp?) crackers in the green box, ingredients listed on the back of the box: flour, water. That's it! (had to look in 2 stores, though, Winn-Dixie didn't have the"pure" kind, but Publix did). As for the wine, a nice jug of dark red from Sam's, with the screw-off cap because I loathe messing with corks. (BTW, I had looked in yellowpages for a group of Messianic Jews and/or "Jews for Jesus" and called them to ask what kind of wine they use, and they said ANY KIND, no biggie).

    Why not just buy it? It's on sale in most of the grocery stores near me.

    So wouldn't salt-free tortillas and a bottle of Gallo do by definition? Only asking as that's what I just had for dinner.

    Yeru kindly pointed out:

    technically, if you add salt, it's a leaven and the "bread" is no good for kosher purposes.

    I think the people on this board are done with technicalities Yerusalim... They have been pushed on us for too many years FMZ

    Thank you everyone. :)


    I knew I could go to the store and buy it, but somehow that didn't feel right, since I'm pretty sure they didn't go to the store and buy it, lol.
