Taste Test – Korean Army Hardtack Biscuits

Hardtack is a simple type of dense cracker made from flour, water, and sometimes salt. Hardtack is inexpensive and long-lasting. It is used for sustenance in the absence of perishable foods, commonly during long sea voyages, land migrations, and military campaigns. Along with salted meat, hardtack was a standard ration for many militaries and navies from the 17th through the early 20th centuries. I had tried authentic hardtack years ago at a Civil War reenactment and found it both interesting and enjoyable. Seeing this product on Amazon I decided to give it a go. The small crackers were durable and tasted similar to the flour and water biscuits I had had before but they were not as bullet proof as I remembered.
