Apocalypse Hal - Hard Tack

Well it is winter here, so a perfect time for some baking and stocking up the pantry. One of the classic foods for packing away is hard tack. It has also been called sea biscuits, ANZAC wafers and a bunch of less flattering names.

This recipe is a cut down version from the Australia War Memorial website. It is based on the recipe Arnotts used when making them for Aussie troops during the second world war. If you want the old original recipe, just like my mum makes, it's simple:

  • plain flour
  • salt 
  • water
The baking steps are the same.  It is called hard tack for reason and they were general soaked first or ground up for cooking. Yum!

Bite of more than you can chew - but carefully.
