MAKING TRADITIONAL HARDTACK: SURVIVAL FOOD RECIPE
Are you looking for an easy, indoor homesteading activity to try with your kids this summer? Why not make some traditional hardtack.
Also known as sea biscuits, sea bread, dog biscuits, and a host of other names, hardtack is a dense, brick-like mixture of flour, water, and salt.
WHAT IS HARDTACK?
The term hardtack itself comes from the British slang “tack” for food. Literally meaning “hard food”, the name perfectly warns a person what to prepare for before eating it.
In the 15th and 16th centuries, the British Royal Navy began mass-producing hardtack to supply its sailors with their daily ration of a pound of hardtack.
