Fresh Dill Crispbread

More DILL! Last week it was dill pickles and dilly beans, this week I sandwiched fresh dill into my fennel crispbreads. I used my pasta machine to get these nice and thin, and I folded in the dill using the same method one would use for creating handkerchief pasta. I used my wild yeast starter…
