Hemp cracklings

Hemp cracklings



20 MIN.


Many Samogitians do not imagine Christmas Eve supper without the so-called cracklings (others also call it hemp cracklings). The dish is easy to make and healthy. Only three products are needed for the preparation of the cracklings: hemp and linseed seeds, and salt. Roasted seeds are crushed in a mortar, salted, then the mixture is crushed once again until the dough is made. Then, again, pour everything into the pan and roast until the powder remains, and eat with potatoes.
