Buckwheat is the gluten-free powerhouse that makes Maine Crisp Co.’s Cranberry Almond Crisps so nutty and craveable. Each bite-size cracker brims with flavor—tart cranberry, aromatic herbes de Provence, and a mosaic of almonds, pumpkin seeds, and sesame. All accompanied by a slight honey sweetness that pairs so well with cheese. The crunchy texture holds up to soft, spreadable cheeses, so arrange them on your board beside Cossanella or Forte Capra Dolce.
- Maine Crisp Co. uses buckwheat as the base for their crackers. Despite its name, buckwheat is not related to wheat—it's a flowering plant related to rhubarb whose seeds can be ground into flour.
- The buckwheat flour used in these crackers is certified gluten-free, and the crisps are produced in a dedicated gluten-free facility.
- Buckwheat more closely mimics the texture of wheat than the typical components of gluten-free crackers like rice or corn. These crunchy crackers satisfied many gluten-loving staff members at Murray’s.
- A bit of herbes de Provence provides a background herbaceous note to these crackers. This seasoning blends flavors typical to the Provence region of southern France—marjoram, rosemary, thyme, oregano, savory, and sometimes lavender.
- While these crisps do contain fruit and honey, the sweetness is secondary to the nutty, savory notes from the buckwheat, nuts, and seeds.
- There’s a reason why Maine Crisp Co.’s crackers pair so well with cheese—the company is the brainchild of cheesemaker Karen Getz.
- After years of baking bread, Karen and her family moved to Vermont where she pursued dairy farming and cheesemaking, going on to win several awards from the American Cheese Society.
- A move to Waterville, Maine, inspired Karen with the quality of Maine-grown buckwheat, and Maine Crisp Co. was born.
- All Maine Crisp Co. products are wheat-free and gluten-free, crafted with buckwheat from Bouchard Family Farm in Aroostook County, Maine.
