First, use your fingers and feel the weight and thickness of the cracker.
Then look closely at the color and texture. Are there seeds, or whole spices. Turn the cracker over. Is it the same on both sides. Hold it close to your nose and take a nice long smell to the point of being able to taste the cracker.
Now take a bite. Hear the crunch on your teeth then listen to the crunching in your head. Is it loud enough to catch someone else’s attention.
Now you have a mouthful of cracker. What does it taste like? Do you sense some acidity in your cheeks? Or spice on your tongue?
Now add cheese, and different types preserves, cured meats and smoked fish. Or not. Some are great on their own.
Most of all: Enjoy!
