fruit and vegetable pulp crackers

Last week I started a Apple Raspberry Wine. Rather than discarding the pulp afterward, I decided to use it.
Whenever I juice or make a mash I am left with a portion of fruit or vegetable pulp that normally is thrown away. I have occasionally added it to cakes or breads. This time I decided to try out crackers.

The result was a crispy flat bread type cracker with something of a fruit roll up thing going on as well.
They are very flavorful and we’ve already finished the batch!

Here’s the how to:

1 cup fruit or vegetable pulp (I used raspberry and apple) from juicing, mash, or ferments.
3/4 cup dark rye flour
1/4 cup coarse rye meal
1/8 cup sesame seeds
1/8 cup dried cranberries
1/8 cup shredded coconut
1 tbsp. oil
3/4 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. cracked black pepper
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. dried lemon zest
1/4 tsp. dried chili pepper seeds
heaping tbsp. peanut butter

*1/4 cup flour (I chose whole wheat)
*seeds, oats, dried fruits, etc.
Sunflower seeds, dried figs, and walnuts are going in next time!

* – as needed for desired ‘dough’.

Combine all in food processor. It won’t form a dough in the traditional
sense, the pulp will dominate it.

Spread using spatula on greased baking sheet to 1/8″ – 1/4″ thickness.
Use edge of spatula to score a grid in cracker sized pieces.

Place in oven at lowest setting and leave door slightly open to allow
moisture to escape. (Or in your dehydrator.)

Dehydrate about 4 hours. Separate along score lines, turn over and continue
dehydrating until done.

I wasn’t sure what to expect, but these were a big hit!

Do you use the fruit & vegetable pulp from juicing, etc. in your recipes?

    This looks like something my parents would be interested in. My parents make wine from different tropical fruits like pineapple, banana, carambola, etc. Maybe they the left over pulp they have could be used like this!
