History of Graham Crackers
The Graham Cracker’s making dates back to the 1800s when the minister Sylvester Graham made these crackers as a part of health foods. They were made by using whole wheat flour. This flour also had bran and wheat germs in it. According to this minister, eating these crackers would eliminate any sinful cravings that people have.
The change in Graham Crackers came later and the ingredients used to make them now are white flour and additives such as honey or chocolate. They can be eaten on their own or they can be used to make desserts such as cakes or cookies. The S’more is also made using Graham crackers in the US. It is one of the most popular recipes in the country.
