I’ve been invited to a home Seder this month, and would like to bring something. Someone suggested I bring some unleavened crackers. I was raised Jewish, but never kept kosher, or even observed the holidays very much.
I was taught that the reason unleavened bread is eaten at Passover is that when the Hebrews were fleeing Egypt they had no time to let their bread rise. Eating only unleavened bread is in remembrance of that. But chemically leavened crackers don’t have any rise time, so...
I know there are plenty of recipes out there for artisanal crackers with no leavening, but I was hoping to try something a little different.
So that is my question: are chemically leavened crackers (or breads, for that matter) kosher for Passover?
