What? You mean Delia the Crone's "recipe" for medieval wafers
won't work? She asserts
This would be lovely as a savory wafer as well, omitting ths sugar,
cinnamon and rosewater, and adding herbs of your choice.

Yeah, that stolen recipe is still there and still not credited.

Grrrrr. I didn't find that particular "quote" but I did see a very  
similar one on a different site. And yes, I noted the extreme  
similarity to what was posted on this list, and in the Florilegium,  
both of which pre-dates these sites. :-(

And it was that comment that I was referring to when mentioning  
several people had talked about ways that a savory wafer *might* work.  
There was also a series of messages from someone else with an  
improving series of redactions, but in the last, she was still  
admitting that her husband (her tester) wasn't that happy with the  

However, none of this answers my original quest for a good redaction  
for a savory period wafer. A lot of suppositions so far, but nothing I  
can really go with.

I think I'll go with one of the meatball recipes, until I can do some  
testing here at home, rather than submit our dance guild to what could  
be a disaster.
