    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 11

    Yield:

    crackers

    Units: US | Metric

    Mix well with a fork

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Flour: preferably not white.
    2. 2
      Fat: Lard, Crisco will do but be FARB.
    3. 3
      Cream of Tartar: a powder which, mixed with baking soda, makes baking powder. Should be in the baking section or spices.
    4. 4
      Saleratus is baking soda. This was the term used for 1 tsp baking soda. It read 1 tsp saleratus -- sort of. Measurements were different. Everyone knew what size an eggs sized lump of butter was or a handful of flour.
    5. 5
      Mix well with a fork the flour, fat and cream of tartar. Set aside. Dissolve the saleratus and salt in the water.
    6. 6
      Combine liquid and dry ingredients; mix well. Roll out dough 3/8" thick (up to a half-inch is okay too) with a rolling pin. Cut into 3" x 3" squares. Use a 1/8" dowel to put 16 holes in each cracker in a 4 x 4 pattern.
    7. 7
      Bake 20-25 minutes at 450°F When done, let air-dry for minimum of 24 hours (preferably more) before you put in a bag or sealed container.
    8. 8
      I knew it was a mistake --.
    9. 9
      Farb: not authentic. "as in those who, no matter how often they are told, seem oblivious to major errors in their dress and equipment. For example: percussion cap weapons on an 1812 field; "furtrade" types with a mixture of clothing dating from mid-18th Century to ACW" OR "would you take those Hushpuppies off before muster please.".
