Civil War Era Hard Tack

Hard is right!

All you need is 2.5 cups of flour mixed with a teaspoon of salt.

Knead in about 1 cup of water a quarter cup at a time. Roll it out, poke it lots with a fork, cut it into shapes, and bake for 30 mins at 375.

Let it cool for the afternoon before you put it away.

And here’s the recipe. Remember, I used an entire cup of water.


Sorry about the wrinkles.
