Buy Peter’s Yard – Swedish Crispbread online from the Lunya deli.
Peter’s Yard discovered their sourdough crispbread near Ystad in the Swedish countryside. They are now made in the UK by a team of skilled bakers, following the original Swedish recipe. They use simple, natural ingredients including Shipton Mill organic flour, organic fresh milk and their precious sourdough, which is fed daily and allowed to ferment for 16 hours before each batch is baked.
In Sweden, crispbread (or knäckebröd) is often at the heart of the table, served as an alternative to bread with a whole host of toppings – from salmon to cheese to jam. Knäckebröd was introduced into Scandinavian countries in the 1500s and soon became a staple part of the diet. Large discs of crispbread were baked during the harvest and left to preserve over the long, dark winters.
Each crispbread was made with a hole in the middle so that it could be hung on a pole, often above the fire, for long periods of time. The result was a crisp, wholesome, delicious bread with the texture of a cracker, big enough for snapping and sharing. That’s why each of their large crispbreads has a hole in the centre, reminiscent of this Swedish tradition.
