What are your favorite salty, vegetarian, shelf-stable snack recipes, made entirely from scratch?
We're trying to purchase fewer pre-made/processed goods from the supermarket and make more ourselves. We already make our own bread, granola, bagels, pizza dough, muffins and cookies (and other sweets/candies). But our weakness seems to be salty snacks. We like things like Pirate's Booty, Kettle Chips, pita chips, bagel chips, and Chex Mix. We've made some of those things before - such as Chex Mix, but since one first has to buy Chex... it doesn't count.
So we're looking for recipes for crunchy, salty, shelf-stable snacks similar to the commercial ones listed above. Must be vegetarian.
We already make our own popcorn (although it seems to go stale fast), enjoy salted nuts, and know about roasting chickpeas. We're thinking about doing pretzels - got any great recipes?
(I saw this
question, but only a few of the recipes were the sort of thing I'm looking for.)
