On the Shelf – Food Finds for May

Oh, we found wonderful and tasty stuff to share with you this month.

We’re big fans of the crackers and biscuits from Evelyn’s Crackers, and they’ve just come out with two new flavours. The Saw-Bucks are made with buckwheat and red fife flour, as well as spelt flakes and currants. They’re like a heartier, healthier version of the British Garibaldi biscuit.

Available at farmers’ markets throughout the city and select stores (check the link for a full list).
