I make them, and they don't get stale, mainly because they are eaten way too fast. I use a pasta roller to roll the dough out, it makes it a snap to make crackers. Oyster and saltine crackers are oil or butter, flour, salt, milk or water, and sometimes baking soda. I have several recipes- before I post them I'm going to make them up and test how long they can keep before getting stale. See if one recipe stays fresher longer. Going to have to find a really good hiding spot!
