Everyone enjoyed this variety except for Mr 11 who, as we all know, can be quite a fussy eater. But the rest of us really liked the crispness of the crackers and the flavour which, although not very strong, could definitely be identified. It had the slight sweet earthiness of kumara, a vegetable we all like. As we always do, we passed the packet around so everyone could taste the crackers on their own before we added other items.
Miss Nine had us all organised without delay. She and her mother had made a dip the day before and there was still some left, so she put it on the table. It was a very plain dip, consisting of onion soup and evaporated milk - the recipe that all kiwis know! But it was tailor-made for the crackers and we finished both dip and packet contents within minutes. Luckily, the boxes contain two sealed packets, so we were able to take the second one home for some further investigation.
With just two of us sharing the second packet, it was possible to try out a few more variations. I assembled several items so we could try them in turn. The first was some grated mild cheese with basil and a finely chopped tomato. Again a firm kiwi favourite! That was delicious; the sweet potato flavour was not overwhelmed by the cheese. Rather, it added a new dimension to it. We really liked the result and would serve it that way again.
Next, we tried a small amount of smoked salmon, adding a shake of lemon juice on top. This was delicious too although I realised the lemon would soften the biscuit if it were put on in advance. It would probably be better to sprinkle the salmon with lemon and serve it in a small dish alongside the biscuits. A few toothpicks would make it easy for people to add the topping just before they ate the cracker, then it would stay crisp. We might try that some time, as we both thought the flavour combination was incredible.
Dinner that night was a seafood salad with jumbo prawns and thousand island dressing. Seafood salads can be sloppy; there needs to be some crunch added for interest. My partner took the last few crackers and broke each into several pieces before scattering them on top of the salad. We ate it immediately, before the crackers could sink in and go soggy. That was yet another great way to enjoy them - we sometimes add chopped nuts to a salad, but the crackers were quite different. Same satisfying crunch but a totally different flavour.
