In a medium bowl, blend the flour and salt. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the vegetable oil and caraway seeds.

Roll each piece into a ball and press into a disk. Roll one disk of dough out as thin as possible, by hand or with a pasta machine. into a round or oblong. Place 2-4 crackers (however many will fit) on a lightly oiled baking sheet and prick with a fork at 2 inch intervals. Bake until lightly browned around the edges, about 15 minutes. Remove to a rack and allow to cool and finish drying out. store in an airtight tin. Repeat with the remaining balls of dough. (makes 20 very large crackers). Source is from Women Day, years ago.
