    Hardtack — A Great Survival Food Stock

    Hardtack-a-great-survival-food-stock/ Simple-Hardtack-Recipe

    Hardtack is nutritious, delicious, and stores easily
    You’ve all heard of hardtack . It’s a great survival food, because it is very nutritious and tasty, and also keeps extremely well when stored in the proper conditions. We’ll show you how to make hardtack using a simple recipe, and show how to cook it to make a delicious survival food. See also Hardtack and Gravy .

    Hardtack is an ideal survival food

    What makes a good survival food? Well, first off, you need to be able to store it for long periods of time without spoiling. Second, it needs to be nutritious. And third, it should taste good. Tasting good is not really a necessity, but it sure is nice if you end up living off the stuff for a long time.
    Hardtack satisfies all three conditions. Once it’s dried thoroughly, it will keep for years, provided it stays dry and away from pests. Edit: The Minnesota Historical Society has a piece of Civil War hardtack in its collection. It’s over 150 years old, and perfectly edible. Watch this video . If you make it with natural, healthy ingredients, it’s very nutritious. And if you know how to prepare it, it tastes delicious. Because it is completely dehydrated, it is relatively light and easy to transport, but because it is so dense, it packs a lot of nutrition in a small package.

    Hardtack history

    Hardtack has actually been around since the time of Egyptian sailors, but you probably know it better from the Civil War period. During the war, 3×3 inch squares of hardtack were shipped to both the Union and Confederate armies, making a staple part of a soldier’s rations. Typically made 6 months beforehand, it was as hard as a rock when it actually got to the troops. To soften it, they usually soaked it in water or coffee. Not only would this soften it enough for eating, but any insect larvae in the bread would float to the top, allowing the soldiers to skim them out.

    Thank you, mudra, for sharing this. I'm going to try to make Hardtack,
    The picture in the tubby, reminded me of the Lembas bread, Frodo and Sam
    shared, during their breakneck steep cliff-resting hours, on their journey to the
    mountains of doom. Look what I found. A glutenfree nutritious Lembas recepee Razz (eating smiley)
