homemade oat crackers
Made some more crackers. These are oat crackers but if you think it looks like Hard Tack, it probably does. I’ve read about Hard Tack, the cracker/biscuits that the civil war folks ate. The army’s Hard Tack was sometimes infested with bugs so it’d float in their coffee….something I read somewhere, mine doesn’t have bugs in it. I use half oat flour and half unbleached white flour. I’ll make the next batch thinner when I roll them out.
This one down below (on the blue) encased in a museum looks like a baby’s teething biscuit. The original recipe didn’t have any lard or oil in them from what I read (mine do). You can just imagine the jokes around our house about my oat crackers! He he he.
