Today’s Experiment: more breadsticks
I am trying to put together a nice selection of not-too-junky (and not-too-expensive) food gifts to go in this years shalach manos (mishloach manot) baskets for Purim.
These breadsticks really seem to hit the spot. Nice and crunchy; with the right seasoning on top, I think they’re just about right. These have salt, pepper and sesame. I may be a bit daring and try rosemary instead on the final product.
What you see here (plus two breadsticks that got munched before I could take the picture) is the output of 1/4 of the recipe I’m using). About a dozen; more if I make them shorter, which I’ll have to do if they’re going to fit in the baskets I’ve bought. Maybe even twenty.
Which means a full recipe might make up to 80 breadsticks.
And then we divide: 4-5 breadsticks in each basket, times thirty baskets… about 120-150 breadsticks.
Okay! I can definitely do this… but it’s sure going to be tiring.
