What is Hard Tack?

Written by , Posted in Food, Foods, History

What is Hard Tack? There is a little history that goes with this food item. It is what Civil War Soldiers packed up to take with them.

Soldiers would put piece of it in their coffee or broth from dried jerky in order to soften it up so it could be eaten. The recipe is as follows: 6 parts flour 1 part water Dough should be kneaded mixed thoroughly. Roll the dough out on a floured hard surface until it is about 1/8 inch thick (or thereabouts). Cut it into squares. Place it on a cookie sheet that has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Prick the hard tack about 13 times with the tip of a knife, make sure holes go completely through the dough. Next bake at 325 for at least an hour, turning it over once. Check to see that it is completely cooked all the way through. Take it out of the oven and allow it to cool overnight. This […]

Perfect Pumpkin Bread

Written by , Posted in Foods

Fall is finally here! The air is crisp, the leaves have turned and the season of giving is about to begin. Still, it wouldn’t be autumn without the perfect pumpkin bread – and the perfect pumpkin bread is made, of course, with fresh pumpkin. So before you carve those jack-o-lanterns, plan to set aside all of that delicious pumpkin and put it to good use with this recipe.   PREP: Lower the oven racks so that the tops of the pans will hit the center of the oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Choose either two small loaf pans (8 x 4 x 2 inches) or one large loaf pan (9 x 5 x 3 inches). Grease bottom of pans only with shortening. INGREDIENTS: 15 oz of pureed pumpkin 1 2/3 cups of sugar 2/3 cups of vegetable oil 2 tsp vanilla extract 4 large eggs 3 cups all purpose (or whole wheat)flour 2 tsp baking soda 1 tsp ground cinnamon 1 tsp salt 1 tsp. ground cloves 1 tsp. baking powder 1 cup chopped nuts (coarsely) 1 cup raisins or dried cranberries (optional) *While fresh pumpkin works best, a can of pumpkin can be substituted in a pinch.
